Division of Surgical Oncology

About Us

The Division of Surgical Oncology is at the forefront of treatment for patients with breast, GI stromal tumor, hepatobiliary-pancreatic, and peritoneal malignancies. Our faculty are active in basic and clinical research, funded by the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute, the Veteran's Administration, and Stand Up to Cancer, among others. Most of these studies use molecularly targeted or other novel therapeutics not offered anywhere else in the nation.

Patient Care

Clinical Spotlight

To make it easier for patients to receive world-class care from San Diego's only National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, UC San Diego Health has added a new multidisciplinary cancer clinic in Hillcrest, staffed with physicians who specialize in some of the most commonly diagnosed malignancies.
