Colorectal Surgery
Clinical Excellence, Compassionate Care & Innovative Research: Taught by Example
The UCSF Department of Surgery mission is threefold: to develop the next generation of leaders in surgery; to provide outstanding quality clinical care that is cost effective, yet compassionate; and to make significant advances in scientific knowledge and clinical practice through basic and clinical research. The care of patients is what attracted most of our faculty and residents into surgery initially, and it continues to be the focus of much of our attention.
