Keila Torres, MD
After graduating from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, Dr. Keila Torres decided to make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Having been deeply impacted by the loss of a cousin to sarcoma, she was drawn to the field. Now a surgeon at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Dr. Torres specializes in providing surgical care to patients with sarcoma. As a scientist, she also leads a laboratory whose primary goal is to understand how sarcomas grow & how they can be treated more effectively. She has received numerous awards & accolades for her work including ASCF’s Commitment to Care award in 2015.
When she is not at the hospital, lab, authoring books or advocating for sarcoma patients, Dr. Keila Torres can be found treasuring time with her beloved husband Jason & their cherished Labrador retrievers: Stanley, Albert & Emma.
