About William S. Gibbons

Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers’ William S. Gibbons Cancer Research Institute is named in honor of William S. “Steve” Gibbons, MD, a community-based orthopedic surgeon in Marietta, GA who lost his battle with follicular lymphoma after a 20-year fight. His life was an inspiration to countless patients, physicians, nurses, friends, and family.

Steve enjoyed a productive life and career with cancer and participated in multiple clinical trails to fight the cancer. The avid outdoor enthusiast constantly entertained friends and colleagues with his quick wit and affable attitude and will be fondly remembered as a trusted colleague and friend.
