The Section of Surgical Oncology provides a state-of-the-art approach to cancer therapy that is centered around multi-disciplinary patient evaluation and cutting-edge surgical treatment.
Faculty within the Section have developed pioneering clinical programs in:
• Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery,
• Breast Surgery,
• Endocrine Surgery,
• Melanoma Surgery
• Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Surgery, and
• Sarcoma Surgery
These programs are positioned within the Stanford Cancer Institute, where surgeons evaluate patients alongside medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and radiologists to provide multi-modality treatment planning.
There is an emphasis on research that can be translated to clinical applications, giving patients quick access to new therapies and the opportunity to participate in innovative clinical trials.
The Section of Surgical Oncology plays a central role in the education of future leaders in Surgery through Stanford’s General Surgery Residency Program and specialized Fellowships in Breast Surgery, Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Surgery, and Complex General Surgical Oncology.
