Stanley T. Leung, M.D.

Dr. Leung is board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology. He developed his subspecialty expertise in gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary pathology at the Mayo Clinic.

After graduating from Columbia University in New York, Dr. Leung completed his medical degree at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Urbana-Champaign, IL. Dr. Leung was recognized as a Lincoln Scholar, a Medical Scholar and received the MBA Management Leadership Award.
 
Dr. Leung completed his residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, PA. He studied under Dr. Virginia LiVolsi, a leader in surgical pathology at the University of Pennsylvania, and a nationally known consultant in endocrine pathology. Dr. Leung taught pathology tutorials to medical students and was involved in numerous interdepartmental teaching conferences throughout the hospital. He was a member of the hospital’s Medical-Legal committee.
 
During Dr. Leung’s tenure at the Mayo Clinic, he studied GI pathology with T.C. Smyrk and T.T. Wu. He experienced a large annual volume of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary specimens, which included nearly 20,000 in-house endoscopic GI biopsy cases and 2,000 extramural consultation cases. There were more than 2,000 liver biopsies, including 400 from liver transplant patients and more than 600 in the extramural consultation practice. It was a large-volume surgical practice with broad exposure to resected gastrointestinal, pancreatic and hepatobiliary cancers.
 
The fellowship combined diagnostic training with opportunities for basic science and clinicopathologic research projects. There
were also extensive opportunities for interactions with clinical colleagues in the form of working conferences (reviewing and discussing material from active patients), teaching conferences (explaining pathology to clinicians and clinical trainees) and attendance at clinical conferences.
 
While practicing in the Quad Cities, Dr. Leung served as Medical Director at the Genesis Medical Center in Illini located in Silvis, IL and the Aledo Campus Laboratory located in Aledo, IL. He served as the Vice Chair of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Genesis Medical Center in Davenport located in Davenport, IA.
 
At Genesis Medical Center, Dr. Leung participated in numerous hospital committees involved with improving patient care delivery including the Medical Executive Committee and the Medical Operations Committee.
 
Dr. Leung was the technical director of surgical pathology, developing and overseeing patient quality assurance and quality improvement programs. In particular, he worked on improving patient specimen handling, creating more uniform diagnostic reporting, and reducing lab errors.
 
Dr. Leung taught gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary pathology to family practice residents at Genesis Medical Center and medical students at Des Moines University through preceptorships and lectures.
