In addition to a robust general surgical practice, he has a special interest in caring for children with cancer, and works closely with the oncology team at Children’s Wisconsin on a daily basis. Whether during evaluation of these complex tumors, in the operating room, or after surgery, Dr. Craig and the entire team are constantly working to improve the care for children with cancer. He is an active member in the Pediatric Surgical Oncology Research Collaborative and Children’s Oncology Group, helping to design and conduct research studies that will improve pediatric surgical oncology care.
