Dr. Whiteford finished his fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at the Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO.

He was also inducted in the Marquis Who's Who in America publication in 2010. Dr. Whiteford is an Affiliate Professor of Surgery at OHSU. Dr. Whiteford is an innovator and renowned expert in minimally invasive colorectal surgery including laparoscopic surgery and transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM, TAMIS).
