Content

The Section of Surgical Oncology is part of one of the best General Surgery Residency programs in the country, giving trainees a broad exposure to clinical opportunities during their rotations at two public hospitals (Ben Taub Hospital and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center) and four private hospitals (Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, Texas Children's Hospital, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Penrose-St. Francis Hospital in Colorado). Residents learn from our surgeons who are trained to perform conventional, complex, and laparoscopic procedures.
