Surgical Oncology Clinic

About This Clinic

UT Health Austin’s Surgical Oncology Clinic provides subspecialty surgical services for melanoma, sarcoma, liver, pancreas, and gastrointestinal cancers in adult patients (18 years and older). We treat cancers affecting the skin, soft tissue, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, small and large intestine, liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, and more.

Treatment Approach

At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place, often during the same appointment, to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Surgical Oncology Clinic care team includes fellowship-trained cancer surgeons that are nationally recognized leaders at the forefront of their field as well as physical therapists, dietitians, social workers, and more, who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.

We collaborate with our colleagues at The University of Texas at Austin and the Dell Medical School to utilize the latest research and treatment techniques, allowing us to identify new therapies to improve cancer treatment. We also work closely with your referring provider and the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes to provide integrated, whole-person care. We focus on applying advanced surgical techniques, including robotic and laparoscopic surgery and other minimally invasive approaches, in combination with comprehensive attention to your complex needs, including nutrition, physical therapy, psychosocial wellbeing, and financial support. Imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.

Appointment Information

We are committed to clear and timely communication with you, your referring provider, and other healthcare specialists, beginning with your initial visit and continuing throughout your cycle of care. Once our clinic receives a referral from your referring provider, members of the Surgical Oncology Clinic care team will identify any existing records of treatment in the UT Health Austin System and communicate with your referring provider to obtain needed medical records and other information. If you have received medical treatment from a provider other than your referring provider, your care team will contact you to receive a written Authorization to Receive Medical Records from your other provider(s). The Surgical Oncology Clinic generally will not schedule your initial appointment until it has received all relevant records. Once all records have been received and reviewed, the UTHA Access Center will contact you to schedule your initial appointment.
