Welcome to the Department of Surgery website. This site offers information about our clinical programs, research interests, educational programs, and more. Our mission is to make a positive contribution to each person’s life. Through care, curing, compassion, and hope, we strive to improve the lives or our patients, their families, those we work with, our community, and the world.
Our department consists of surgeons and researchers who are known for their work both nationally and internationally. Alongside these individuals works a support system of administrative personnel who are unmatched in their efforts as we all dare to be exceptional. Through our collective work we are innovating surgical care, finding cures through discovery, and educating the world’s future surgical leaders.
It is our hope that our vision to be dedicated, compassionate innovators and caregivers resonates through the information in the pages we have provided. We look forward to connecting with you.
