Division of Oncologic and Endocrine Surgery

Surgery is used in several ways to help people with cancer and it provides the best chance to stop many types of cancer. It also plays a part in diagnosing, staging, and supporting cancer treatment. 
The team of surgeons in the Division of Oncologic and Endocrine Surgery specialize in treating cancer patients, including Fellowship-trained surgical oncologists. 
  • We care for patients with breast diseases/cancer, endocrine tumors, melanoma, soft tissue tumors, pancreas cancer, liver cancer, bile duct cancer, colon cancer and gastric cancer.
  • We advance knowledge regarding breast  diseases/cancers, endocrine tumors, melanoma, soft tissue tumors, and  GI cancers through basic, translational and clinical research.
  • We are at the forefront of minimally invasive techniques that improve precision and reduce recovery time. 
  • We educate students and residents regarding optimal treatment and care of patients with breast diseases/cancers, endocrine tumors, melanomas, soft tissue tumors, and GI cancers.
