Referring Physicians

For consultation, or to refer a patient to UR Medicine Surgery, please consult our Surgery Access Guide.

Although our departmental divisions reflect the specialized nature of many faculty practices, many of our surgeons welcome referrals for common general surgical problems such as cholelithiasis, hernia and gastrointestinal disease.
