Emory's Division of Surgical Oncology

Georgia's most comprehensive and advanced center for cancer care

Our surgeons are the surgical staff of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia's only NCI Designated Cancer Center and and metropolitan Atlanta's only Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia-certified Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers. Our surgical teams treat such conditions as adrenal masses, biliary tumors, breast cancer and tumors, colon and rectal cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, head and neck cancer, liver cancer and tumors, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, sarcoma and skin cancer with such procedures as radiofrequency ablation of liver tumors, oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery, sentinel node biopsy, laparoscopic pancreatectomy and many others.

As an NCI-designated center, Winship joins an elite group of cancer centers nationwide that are on the forefront of the battle against cancer. The designation benefits patients through increased access to new clinical trials and technologies and allows our surgeons to translate advances into treatment safely and efficiently.

Our program is a regional referral center for a variety of conditions, such as melanoma and colorectal cancer. At Winship's Breast Health Center, which offers centralized services for breast cancer care, our physicians focus on breast conservation and reconstruction by performing neoadjuvant chemotherapy, making breast sparing possible; skin-sparing mastectomy, preserving the patient's breast skin for use in reconstruction; and oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery, a collaborative procedure performed with Emory plastic surgeons that allows patients to avoid mastectomy.
