Research at the Department of Surgery allows our surgeons to better treat and serve their patients throughout their time with us. We have bolstered the basic science research alongside Dr. Mack Wu. We also work with Ben Djulbegovic, M.D., who is heavily involved in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program which collects and analyzes clinical outcomes data to improve surgical care for our patients. The Department of Surgery is also very proud of our Breast Health Program’s research team as they constantly work to find new treatment methods. Although we have made advances with our different forms of research, there is still much work to do.

Through our healthcare, education and research, the Department of Surgery continues to grow and offer some of the best opportunities to our patients, students and faculty. We are eager for you to discover the energy behind our programs, and look forward to your comments.
