Surgical Oncology

The Section of Surgical Oncology is responsible for the care of patients requiring operative intervention for the treatment of cancer.

Our surgeons and staff are involved with the care of patients at the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital and the UK Markey Cancer Center. Surgical Oncology manages multidisciplinary clinics for breast disease, GI malignancy and melanoma.

This section is actively involved in research investigating cancer immunology, the role of biological response modifiers in the treatment of head and neck cancer, and translational research applying gene therapy to malignancies.
