Dr. Stieber joined DeKalb Surgical Associates in 2008. He had previously been on staff at Emory University since 1992. Dr. Stieber brings to DeKalb his knowledge, experience, and expertise in dealing with complex liver, biliary and pancreatic problems. Dr. Stieber is truly one of the top experts in this difficult area.
Dr. Stieber’s expertise includes treatment of hepatic, biliary and pancreatic cancers, management of complex benign hepaticobiliary and pancreatic diseases, and other abdominal surgeries. A graduate of the State University of Milan (Italy) Medical School, Dr. Stieber completed his general surgical residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. He completed his fellowship in solid organ transplantation from the University of Pittsburgh, where his mentor was Dr. Thomas Starzl, who is widely considered the “Father of Liver Transplantation.”
For 16 years, Dr. Stieber was a senior surgeon in the Liver Transplant Program at Emory University. During this time, he was instrumental in the growth of the adult program, which went from about 30 transplants a year before his tenure, to a peak of 102 transplants. He also distinguished himself as a teacher, both of general surgery residents and liver transplant fellows and won a Golden Apple Award in 2004. Both at the University of Pittsburgh and at Emory, he performed and taught numerous general surgery, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and vascular surgery procedures, usually in very difficult circumstances in transplant patients. Dr. Stieber brings 23 years of hepatobiliary and pancreatic expertise to DeKalb Surgical. Although he performs general surgery procedures, his emphasis is on liver, bile ducts and pancreas procedures and he continues to develop and refine a novel technique he designed for open liver resections.
