The excellence of our faculty has earned them national recognition and we are able to provide the highest quality of care as a result.  Across the breadth of our practice, we provide all types of surgical care, including:

  • Bariatrics
  • Cardiac
  • Colorectal
  • Diaphragm Pacing
  • General Surgery
  • Hepatobiliary
  • Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery
  • Oncology
  • Pediatric
  • Thoracic
  • Vascular
  • Trauma/Critical Care
  • Transplant

Our residency and fellowship programs are an integral part of the Surgery Department while adding to the rich culture of education and research.

The three primary teaching hospitals each has a dedicated and unique faculty with special expertise that enriches patient care, and each adds a different perspective to the educational experience.

Our faculty members continue to present and publish some of the best international clinical outcomes, based on their skill at optimizing the care they provide daily to their patients. The surgery department also has distinguished itself, both nationally and internationally, by its creative, innovative, hands-on and web-based postgraduate educational courses.
