Huntsman Cancer Institute

Surgical oncology specialists offer the most advanced screening, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up care, and research for patients with cancer. We are surgeons and investigators promoting clinician-driven translational research in the fields of breast oncology, skin cancer and melanoma, soft tissue sarcomas, and all gastrointestinal cancers, including esophageal, stomach, liver, biliary, pancreas, small bowel, colon, and rectal cancers.

While surgical procedures remain the primary treatment of most cancers, advances in surgical care, treatment innovation, and studies in the biology of the malignant diseases is the center of our patient care and research efforts.
