Surgeons within the Division of Surgical Oncology provide daily care to patients, while also devoting their time and expertise to research. Our surgical oncologists provide highly advanced surgical care, working one-on-one with patients to create treatment plans just for them. They also work diligently behind the scenes as active scientific researchers. As active physician-scientists, our surgeons move discoveries from concept to research to direct patient care—pioneering life-changing approaches that improve diagnoses, treatment techniques and quality of life. The research studies, clinical trials and scientific discoveries completed by our surgeons have led to revolutionary innovations in the field of surgical oncology.
There are several labs and many clinical studies and other types of research being conducted by members of the division.
