Gastric Cancer Fellowship from Seoul National University Hospital in Seoul, South Korea Surgical Oncology Fellowship from Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Dr. Lillard attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and completed her residency in general surgery at the University of Washington. Most recently, she completed a Surgical Oncology fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. During her surgical oncology training, she was awarded a gastric cancer fellowship from Seoul National University Hospital in Seoul, South Korea. She specializes in surgical treatments for cancer, specifically gastrointestinal related cancers, endocrine cancers and skin cancers. Dr. Lillard and Dr. David Sheldon, her partner at Northwest Montana Surgical Associates, are the only two surgical oncologists in the State of Montana. “For patients, it is very important to have have access to high-level, multidisciplinary care in their local community,” she said. “It’s critical to their health care — not to be away from home and family.” Dr. Lillard believes that cancer care involves a team approach, involving multiple physicians, clinicians and the patient’s support system. “Not only does the patient need to be taken care of but the family members need to be integrated in that process as well,” she said. “They provide that second set of ears, which is really important for a cancer patient.” Dr. Lillard has an adventurous spirit and enjoys traveling, hiking, biking and all things outdoors.
