Saint Agnes Hospital recently introduced Baltimore-based doctor Steven Cunningham as the newest member of its medical staff. The Johns Hopkins-trained pancreatic and liver surgery specialist is also board-certified in general surgery.

Dr. Cunningham’s arrival supports Saint Agnes’ Cancer Institute, known for its skilled clinical leadership, state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive treatment and patient service programs. Long term, Saint Agnes is striving to become a regional destination hospital for patients undergoing treatment and surgical interventions for liver and pancreatic diseases. “I am excited to be part of Saint Agnes,” said Cunningham, whose appointment to the medical staff was effective Aug. 23, in a statement “Everyone I talk to has nothing but good things to say about the hospital.”

Most recently, Cunningham completed a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University in hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery. Prior to that, he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at Johns Hopkins University from 2003 – 2006, while performing his residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center from 2001 – 2009.

Originally from Denver, Cunningham attended medical school at the George Washington University. He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, the Society for Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and the Association for Academic Surgery. He is also the author of a children’s poetry book, Dinosaur Name Poems.
