Kathryn Bower, DO has joined The Cancer Center of Sarasota-Manatee. She will see patients at the Bradenton office, located at 4351 Cortez Road, Suite 100, Bradenton, FL 34210.
Dr. Bower is board certified in Hematology, Oncology, and Internal Medicine. She recently completed her Hematology/Oncology fellowship at West Virginia University in June 2019. She earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pennsylvania. Prior to this she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Bower is ambitious and is dedicated to all her patients. She has a unique approach to providing both novel therapies and high-quality care.
Prior to the Cancer Center, she was a BMT-CI Fellow starting from July 2019 at the Department of Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy at H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute in Tampa, FL. Her training focused on transplant and immunotherapy, such as CAR-T therapy.
She is continually gaining expertise in determining the indications, complications, and management of this complex patient population. She strives to provide her patients with care that excels beyond their expectations alongside compassion through their most difficult times in life. Her desire is to continue the path of malignant hematology so that she can demonstrate her dedication to those undergoing some of the most intensive and life-altering therapies.
She projects a positive attitude and is always enthusiastic to help in any way she can. When Dr. Bower is out of the office, she enjoys mountain biking, reading mystery novels, and learning about astronomy. Fun fact that some may not know about her is that she played the bells in the Notre Dame Drumline in college.
Dr. Kathryn Bower looks forward to servicing the Bradenton communities in an unparalleled fashion. Her goal is to provide the BEST in cancer care in the area. She respectfully wishes that you join her in this goal.
