Chairman’s Message

The era we find ourselves in, in surgery, is like none before. Surgery is becoming more minimally invasive, image-guided and technologically driven. A modern surgery department must recognize these changes, embrace them, and school its students in these evolving skills. The challenges of changing patterns of learning, of changing funding for research, and changing skill sets for clinical practices make this a time of great opportunity. New paradigms in each of these areas are needed to face the future.

Our faculty bring creativity, and energy to help shape surgery as it will be practiced and taught tomorrow. We hope that this website will help you to know our Department better. The Department has a long and rich history of clinical excellence, educational innovation, and novel research.
