Dr. Loggie's expertise is in surgical oncology and the management and treatment of rare cancers, including: peritoneal mesothelioma, cutaneous malignant melanoma, peritoneal carcinomatosis and malignant ascites, abdominopelvic and retroperitoneal sarcomas, pseudomyxoma peritonei, and management of complex primary or recurrent solid tumors. He also has an interest in peritoneal neoplastic disease, appendix neoplasms, gastrointestinal cancers, and ovarian cancer. His research interests also include Cox 2 mucinous cancers, estrogen receptor regulation and clinical trials for mesothelioma.
Before coming to the Creighton University School of Medicine, Dr. Loggie worked at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he pioneered the use of heated chemotherapy and cytoreductive surgery for the treatment of peritoneal cancer. His research has led him to support the new and existing mutations in the Tyrosine Kinase Domain of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor as predictors of the optimal resectability in Mesothelioma.
