Dr. Andrew Nish

Dr. Andrew Nish graduated from Carleton College in 1981 and then pursued his medical degree at the Chicago Medical School. Following graduation from medical school, he completed a 4-year residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. 

Following residency, he completed a 1-year fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Interventional Radiology. Following his fellowship he moved to Des Moines and began a 27-year career as an Interventional Radiologist at Iowa Methodist Medical Center. During that time he introduced many new procedures to the medical center including peripheral arterial stents, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts, chemo and radioembolization of liver tumors and microwave ablation of tumors in many locations. 

Despite his successful career he became restless and began to question the care model of traditional western style medicine. A retrospective analysis of his 27-year career revealed the fact that patient health was not getting better and that the traditional care model was failing patients and their families. With this new insight he began to study nutrition, stress, exercise and sleep as it related to health and wellness. He went on to enroll in a 2-year fellowship at the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, completing his studies in October of 2018. 

Currently Dr. Nish is the medical director of the John Stoddard Cancer Center in Des Moines. His passion is to educate the public and health care workers about true health and well being and how this can be achieved through lifestyle changes including: food and nutrition, stress management, sleep, exercise, purpose in life and social relationships. He is fascinated with the mind-body connection and how our thoughts and beliefs directly influence our physical and mental health.

Dr. Nish also contributes to a John Stoddard Cancer Center - Trending Topics video series.
