Jessica Thomes Pepin, MD

Minnesota Oncology is pleased to introduce our newest provider, Jessica Thomes Pepin, M.D. with the practice of Gynecologic Oncology at the Woodbury Clinic

Dr. Thomes Pepin received her medical degree from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, Minneapolis, Minnesota. She completed a residency in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Indiana University and a fellowship at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Indiana, Indianapolis, Indiana. She was also the recipient of the Galloway Fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY.

“Cancer care begins with the patient," Dr. Thomes-Pepin says. "My compassionate, patient-driven focus is to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment of the highest quality nature. My goals are to utilize the latest evidence-based medicine, directed in a multi-disciplinary fashion to fully optimize each individual patient’s oncologic outcome."

Dr. Thomes Pepin presented her research on Current trends in operative morbidity of groin lymph node dissections in vulvar cancer at the IGCS Biennial Conference in Vancouver, Canada and poster presentations at several conferences including the Society for Gynecologic Oncologists, the Western Association for Gynecologic Oncologists and the American Association of Cancer Research. She has written and co-authored several book chapters on translational advances in gynecologic cancer and the perioperative surgical care for patients with cancers of the female reproductive system.

Dr. Thomes Pepin is a Minnesota native from Arlington, Minn, southwest of the Twin Cities metro area. "My husband and I were overjoyed to be offered the opportunity to move back to our home state, so that we could provide medical care to the best of our abilities to the wonderful people of Minnesota," she said. "We love attending Twins games, Vikings games and other professional and amateur sporting events. We also enjoy spending time with our families in greater Minnesota."

As Dr. Thomes Pepin begins to care for our gynecologic oncology patients at our Woodbury location, Dr. A. Catherine Casey will be transitioning her practice to our Edina Clinic.

Welcome, Dr. Thomes Pepin!
