Surgical Care at UC San Diego



UC San Diego’s Department of Surgery is world-renowned for its leaders in patient care, academic excellence and breakthrough research. UC San Diego surgeons are redefining surgery by innovating minimally invasive techniques that mean faster recovery times, minimized pain, and better outcomes for our patients, as well as managing the most complex treatments, such as HIPEC (Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy) procedures.

At the UC San Diego Center for the Future of Surgery, surgeon-scientists are dedicated to enhancing patient safety by developing revolutionary surgical procedures, like NOTES (Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery), and providing advanced surgical training to new and currently practicing surgeons on the latest technology such as the da Vinci® Surgical System.

A gift supporting surgery will help us deliver better care, pursue groundbreaking new discoveries and educate the next generation of surgical pioneers.
