Meredith Winkelhake, NP


Meredith Winkelhake, NP, is a UW Health nurse practitioner. Meredith cares for people with cancers of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. She has a special clinical interest in younger patients with colon cancer.

Meredith is involved in oncology clinical research trials seeking breakthrough treatments for GI cancers. She sees patients on those trials and makes sure they’re fit to get their treatment that day. She also helps to manage their side effects.

Outside of work, Meredith enjoys reading, camping and spending time outdoors with her family.

It’s very important to be on the same page as the patient and their family. I have an in-depth discussion with them to understand their treatment and quality-of-life goals.
