The UR Medicine Department of Surgery is a place where discoveries are made and the most complex and challenging diseases are cured. Our mission is not only to treat disease, but to also conduct innovative research that enables us to gain a greater understanding of the biological mechanisms of disease, identify new technologies for improved diagnostics and treatment and to develop novel surgical approaches. 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.
