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.
