Prof. Dr. Gary Deng

Dr. Deng is Medical Director of the Bendheim Integrative Medicine Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and Professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in New York City. His professional expertise is in the use of an integrative medicine approach to help patients throughout the continuum of cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. This approach aims to build a patient’s physical and mental resilience, reduce symptoms during treatment, speed up recovery after treatment, lower recurrence risks, prevent further illnesses, and achieve optimal wellness.

Dr. Deng has taken a leadership role in the emerging and evolving field of integrative oncology, where lifestyle changes and use of non-drug therapies are incorporated into patient-centered cancer care. Since 2003, he has built a robust integrative medicine physician practice that is trusted and valued by oncology colleagues and directs clinical services provided at the Bendheim Integrative Medicine Center at MSKCC.

Dr. Deng is active in conducting research and developing innovations in the field. He is principal investigator of research projects on acupuncture, yoga, and botanical agents. Dr. Deng has developed education programs for physicians, nurses, acupuncturists, massage therapist and yoga instructors. He is the lead author of several integrative oncology clinical practice guidelines and numerous publications of clinical trial data, reviews, and textbook chapters. Dr. Deng is frequently invited to give lectures internationally to both professional and lay audiences, and to review clinical trial protocols, grant applications to National Institute of Health, and professional manuscripts (including New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, and Journal of Clinical Oncology). He is the author of “The Wellness Principles: Cooking for a Healthy Life”, a cookbook with advice on healthy living and 100 recipes for healthy, tasty, and quick home cooking.

Dr. Deng received his medical degree from Peking University Health Science Center, China, and his Ph.D. degree in Microbiology and Immunology from University of Miami, Florida. He completed his clinical training at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston and research training at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
