General Surgery In the Department of Surgery

Surgical Oncology

With the addition of Dr. Jeffrey Norton as Chief of the section of Surgical Oncology, it is our expectation that he will bring together all of the surgical oncology programs in the Division of General Surgery - breast cancer, melanoma, gastrointestinal, and pancreatic cancer. The Surgical Oncology practice moved to the new Stanford Cancer Center this past spring of 2004. This section's oncological focus includes endocrine (Drs. Norton and Greco), breast (Drs. Dirbas, Jeffrey, Johnson and Wapnir), liver (Dr. So), melanoma (Dr. Johnson), as well as the more routine general surgical conditions.

Patients with solid tumors, breast cancer, melanoma, liver cancer, or pancreatic cancer can come to Stanford with the assurance that skilled, experienced surgeons are backed by powerful interdisciplinary insights and research.

Our surgical oncology specialty also includes:
