Philosophy of Care

I believe that the best care for an infant or child with a complex problem is multidisciplinary. All of the specialists involved in treating a problem working closely together to cure the child provides the highest quality and most efficient care.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Robert Shamberger was born in Columbia, Missouri. He received his BA degree in Zoology from the University of Missouri in Columbia in 1971. He received his M.D. at Harvard Medical School, entered the Surgery Residency Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital and took two years off for a surgical oncology fellowship in the Surgery Branch of the National Cancer Institute from 1978 to 1980. He was administrative Chief Resident at Massachusetts General Hospital from 1982-1983 and then performed a pediatric surgical fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital.

Dr. Shamberger then joined the staff at Children's Hospital Boston with three areas of focus: inflammatory bowel disease, congenital chest wall deformities, and pediatric oncology including thyroid disease. The bulk of his academic efforts have been in the area of pediatric oncology. He has been actively involved in the cooperative group trials of the National Wilms’ Tumor Study Group, the Pediatric Oncology Group (POG) and the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). He was the Chair of the Surgery Committee of POG for five years and then of COG for an additional five years. He remains active in the surgical agenda of the Group and was a principal investigator of several recently closed clinical trials.

Dr. Shamberger ran the Surgery Residency Program at Boston Children’s Hospital for 15 years. He rose through the academic ranks at Harvard Medical School from Assistant Professor in 1986 to full Professor in 2000. He became the Robert E. Gross Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School in 2004, when he also became the Chief of Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital.

In 2011–2012, Dr. Shamberger was President of the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA), and President of Boston Surgical Society.   He is also Past-Chair of the Section on Surgery of the  American Academy of Pediatrics for 2011-2012 and is President of the International Society of Pediatric Surgical Oncology.
