Faculty

The University of Rochester Medical Center counts among its professional medical staff some of the most dedicated and gifted surgeons in the country. The physicians associated with the General Surgery Residency Program—many of whom have been, and now are, involved in significant research—earn high grades for their medical knowledge and teaching expertise.

An integrated interdisciplinary approach to surgery keeps us at the leading edge of patient care and research that is advancing the field.

As part of a major academic health center, Department of Surgery faculty work with physicians and multi-disciplinary teams in our areas of specialization.
