Department of Surgery


    Surgeons OperatingThe Department of Surgery gained international recognition when four University physicians pioneered open heart surgery in the 1950's. Today, physicians in the Department are nationally recognized for excellence in the areas of cancer surgery, pediatric and adult cardiac surgery, pulmonary tuberculosis surgery, burn treatment, urologic oncology, plastic/reconstructive/hand surgery, solid organ transplantation, vascular surgery, and trauma surgery.
