Robert S. Krouse, MD, MS, is Chief of the Surgical Services at the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and an Instructor of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. In his position at the VA Surgical Service, Dr. Krouse oversees the range of clinical sections which are intimately integrated with the University of Pennsylvania.

A graduate of Hahnemann Medical School (now Drexel), Dr. Krouse completed his Surgical Residency at West Virginia University, an Immunotherapy Fellowship at the National Cancer Institute (1993-1994), and his Surgical Oncology Fellowship at the City of Hope National Medical Center (1997-2000). He is board certified in both General Surgery and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. His oncologic clinical interests include skin cancers, GI cancers, soft tissue sarcomas, and endocrine cancers. His research interests have predominantly focused on Cancer Survivorship issues, including End-of-Life Care. Dr. Krouse came to the University of Pennsylvania in July 2016 after spending 16 years at the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Tucson VA.

Dr. Krouse participates in many research projects, predominantly related to his major interests in gastrointestinal cancers, skin cancers, quality of life, and end of life care.  He was the Principal Investigator of a Department of Veterans Affairs Health Services Research and Development Award (IIR 02-221) related to the quality of life for veterans with intestinal stomas and of an NCI R01 (CA106912) quality of life study for long-term cancer survivors with intestinal stomas in a general population setting. A renewal of this grant focused on rectal cancer survivors and functional outcomes.  He was also Principal Investigator of a pilot intervention study (R21 CA133337) for new ostomates to test the feasibility, efficacy, and comprehensibility of a self-management care curriculum based on the Chronic Care Model. He is recognized internationally as an expert in the palliative surgical treatment of patients with advanced cancer.  This notably includes invasive procedures for symptom control.  In 2004 Dr. Krouse organized and was moderator for an international conference on malignant bowel obstruction (R13 CA110771), with the goal of advancing palliative care research through development of a trial protocol using malignant bowel obstruction as a model.  Dr. Krouse is Principal Investigator for a trial protocol for malignant bowel obstruction funded by AHRQ (R01 HS021491) in partnership with SWOG (S1316), as well as a recently funded patient-centered outcomes study using telehealth to empower ostomates in self-management of their ostomy care and improve their quality of life (PCORI 1507-31690).

Dr. Krouse serves on the Executive Committee of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Surgical Palliative Care, whose purpose is to help introduce the precepts and techniques of palliative care to surgical practice and education in the United States and Canada.  He is also the Co-Chair of the SWOG Cancer Survivorship Committee.

Dr. Krouse has published more than 100 peer-reviewed research papers, book chapters and reviews, many of which have added to the understanding of the long-term effects of cancer treatments, cancer survivors health-related quality of life, as well as addressing palliative care needs for patients with advanced malignancies.
