General Surgery Services

The Division of General Surgery supports several sections and multi-disciplinary programs including: 

Abdominal Transplant Surgery
The surgeons of the University of Arizona's College of Medicine have been helping patients in need of organ transplants for more than 40 years. Our transplant surgeons and physicians have specific expertise in transplants in areas such as diabetes mellitus, with a focus on pancreas and kidney transplants; multiple organ transplants (e.g., pancreas-kidney, liver-kidney, heart-kidney, lung-kidney); and transplants for hepatitis or for liver and bile duct cancer.

Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery
By dramatically enhancing visualization, precision, control and dexterity, the da Vinci® Robotic System overcomes the limitations of traditional laparoscopic technology, helping physicians to perform complex surgery in a manner never before experienced. With enhanced surgical capabilities, physicians are now able to extend the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the broadest possible range of patients.

Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery
Our surgeons perform all aspects of plastic surgery, including reconstruction of traumatic, oncologic or surgical defects, as well as breast reduction, body contouring and cosmetic surgery.

Surgical Oncology
Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care to the patient with solid malignancies. Our patient-centered care covers the entire cancer continuum including screening and prevention, early detection, diagnosis, staging, local and systemic treatment, rehabilitation, survivorship, and palliative care.
