Surgical Oncology Division


UVA Surgical Oncology Division provider listens to a patient's heartbeat

The Division of Surgical Oncology at the University of Virginia has an outstanding national reputation for performing high-volume and high-quality surgical and multidisciplinary care.

The division is comprised of three sections: Breast and Melanoma Surgery, Endocrine Surgery, and Gastrointestinal/Hepatobiliary Surgery. We treat patients with breast cancer; melanoma;  sarcoma and soft tissue tumors of the extremities, trunk, and retroperitoneum; lesions of the liver, pancreas, biliary tree, gastric, duodenal, and small bowel, as well as thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands.

Our surgeons provide the highest-level treatment for patients throughout Virginia and beyond. With many of our patients traveling from afar to receive specialized services, we focus on delivering efficient care with as few visits as possible.

We provide patients with the knowledge and resources to navigate all stages of their condition, from diagnosis to treatment options to recovery. We pledge to provide excellent care based on evidence-based practices while maintaining respect and compassion for patients and families.

Clinical Programs
