Gastrointestinal Surgery

UPMC Content 3

The Division of Surgical Oncology’s Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgery Program comprises faculty surgeons who have dedicated their careers to the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal diseases and cancers.

The goal of the cancer program is to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for patients with cancers of the distal esophagus, stomach, duodenum, and small intestine, as well as the large intestine, colon, and rectum.

Our surgeons work closely with the Pancreatic Cancer Center to coordinate care for patients with complex disease involving the pancreas. 

Faculty of the GI Surgery Program at UPMC are devoted to providing personalized, high-quality, and state-of-the-art care, with an emphasis on minimally invasive surgical approaches, such as laparoscopic surgery (also known as key-hole surgery), robotic surgery, and natural orifice surgery.

Our practice includes active research projects that are investigating the impact of minimally invasive procedures on pain and recovery following surgery; testing new therapies for pancreas, colon, and other cancers; and improving the ability to predict a patient’s response to these treatments.​
