Surgical Oncology

About this Clinic

The Surgical Oncology Clinic at UT Health Austin provides surgical services for melanoma, sarcoma, liver, pancreas, and gastrointestinal cancers. This includes cancers affecting the skin, soft tissue, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, small and large intestine, liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, and more.

Using the most up-to-date surgical techniques to diagnose and treat cancers and related illness, our fellowship trained cancer surgeons are nationally-recognized leaders at the forefront of their field. We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research and treatment techniques and identify new therapies to improve cancer treatment.

We work closely with our patient’s referring physician and the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes to provide integrated, whole person care for people diagnosed with cancer. Our team focuses on applying advanced surgical techniques (including robotic and laparoscopic surgery and other minimally invasive approaches) in combination with comprehensive attention to the complex needs of our cancer patients, including nutrition, physical therapy, psychosocial wellbeing, and financial support. We are committed to clear and timely communication with our patients, referring physicians, and other providers, beginning with our initial patient encounter and continuing throughout the cycle of care.
