As the multi-specialty group practice for the faculty of the University of Minnesota Medical School, University of Minnesota Physicians has more than 950 physicians and 1,600 health professionals, providing clinical care in over 100 specialty and sub-specialty areas. Our mission is three-fold: delivering exceptional patient care, advancing medicine through research, and training the next generation of health professionals.
Our team of surgical oncologists evaluate and treat patients with a variety of cancers, including breast cancer, melanoma, stomach cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, thyroid and endocrine tumors, appendix tumors, colorectal cancer, liver tumors and pancreas cancer.
Our board-certified surgeons all have specialized fellowship training and work in a multidisciplinary setting with other specialists to provide the latest treatments and innovations in surgical cancer care. Surgeons with University of Minnesota Health Cancer Care are often leading the development of surgical methods and techniques, which are then adopted elsewhere as standard of care. We were the first surgical oncology program to offer the state-of-the-art hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) in Minnesota when our program began in 2002. Our surgical oncologists were also among the first in the United States to perform videoscopic lymph node surgery for melanoma.
Our surgeons are nationally recognized for their research and advancement in surgical techniques and care. Our surgical oncologists consistently get recognized among the top-rated surgeons in publications like Newsweek and Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine, among others.
