Division Chief's Message

Welcome to the Division of Surgical Oncology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. The division includes the sections of Melanoma and Soft Tissue Surgical oncology, Hepatobiliary Surgery and Endocrine Surgery. Each of our surgeons has advanced fellowship training in his or her area of expertise. In keeping with the vision of the Department of Surgery as a whole, our division is dedicated to being a leader in cutting-edge, multidisciplinary, and personalized clinical care through our partnership with Northwestern Medicine. In addition to being leaders in their respective clinical fields, many of our faculty have a research interest in surgical quality and clinical outcomes, for which they are nationally known.

Finally, our physicians have a passion for education and a commitment to creating a learning and training environment that ensures our students and residents realize their utmost potential. Consistent with our mission, our trainees learn compassionate care in an evidence-based setting.

Thank you for your interest in our division. We invite you to contact us with your comments and questions.
