Make Appointments & Get Care


The specialists and staff of the Division of Surgical Oncology make it their mission to provide care to cancer patients that is truly conducive to healing, by applying the very latest treatments in a compassionate environment. They have access to all of the resources of the University of Rochester Medical Center—including the Wilmot Cancer Institute, one of the nation's leading cancer research facilities. This means your cancer can be treated with important new cancer-fighting medicines and technologies, often before they're available anywhere else, and you could be chosen to participate in groundbreaking clinical trials. Patients who entrust us with their care can be confident knowing they have quick, convenient access to expert physicians, as well as the latest in treatment options and clinical trials.

UR Medicine's Approach

The Importance of a Full-Service Program

Studies show that cancer patients treated by specialists have better outcomes. Each of our fellowship-trained surgeons specializes in a particular type of cancer. They also work with medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, nutritionists and other team members to ensure the best result for each patient. This comprehensive approach to cancer care offers you both a specialized understanding of specific diseases and multi-disciplinary care. We’re the only full-service oncology program in the region, so we can provide the best possible treatment tailored to the requirements of each individual patient.
