Department of Surgery


Research Our mission is not only to treat disease but also to conduct research that leads to the development of new medical procedures and treatments. Our highly integrated faculty utilizes a broad investigative approach that employs both basic and clinical research techniques to unravel the mysteries of various disease processes. We are gaining a greater understanding of the biological mechanisms of disease, identifying new technologies for improved diagnostics and treatment, and developing novel surgical approaches.

“Our vision is not only to grow a robust surgical enterprise at the Medical Center but to advance the field in our many areas of specialization —creating new standards of surgical care that address the needs of each individual patient.” – Jeffrey H. Peters, M.D., Chairman of Department of Surgery
