Kenneth J. Kolbeck M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Kolbeck specializes in caring for patients with various types of cancer. He has advanced training in interventional radiology procedures with a focus on interventional oncology techniques. The majority of his patients have primary liver cancer or cancer that has spread to the liver. He also treats some patients with kidney cancer. Dr. Kolbeck and his wife enjoy spending time outdoors in the Pacific Northwest. Opportunities for hiking, skiing and fishing are abundant here in Portland, and Dr. Kolbeck pursues them in his available spare time.
