Hospital for Advanced Surgery
Surgery Lobby in the Jacobs Medical Center
Every year, millions of patients in the United States require lifesaving surgery. Surgical intervention is often the only definitive treatment to eradicate malignancies or to repair the body's delicate infrastructure. Whether a person suffers from cancer, organ failure or other debilitating conditions, patients in our region deserve access to world-class surgical care. Fortunately, UC San Diego Health System has recruited a team of internationally recognized surgeon-scientists whose expertise is sought after by patients from around the world.
Delivering the Future of Surgery, Today
Imagine surgery to remove a diseased appendix without external cuts. Imagine surgery that washes the body's internal organs with anti-cancer agents to extend the life of critically ill cancer patients. Imagine surgery that can remove, reconstruct and repair a tumor-riddled liver for re-implantation.
At UC San Diego Health System, such breakthrough surgical treatments are reality. To continue making discoveries in this field and accommodate growing demand for specialized services, the Hospital for Advanced Surgery in the new Jacobs Medical Center will be a state-of-the-art, technologically rich center for minimally invasive and open surgery that employs micro-incision, robotic and scarless techniques.
One Location Integrates Diagnostics, Imaging and Advanced Surgical Techniques
The mission of the Hospital is to integrate leading-edge diagnostics, imaging and surgical care to ensure every patient receives optimal treatment for his or her specific diagnosis.
Surgeons at UC San Diego Health System are challenged to not only offer their patients the best clinical care possible, but to ask themselves, “What can I do better and differently today?” The result is a compassionate approach based on current research and personalized to the patient’s background and individual needs.
With the Hospital for Advanced Surgery, patients faced with a life-threatening illness requiring next-generation surgery will not have to travel long distances in pursuit of the most advanced care. The nation’s best surgeons are right here at UC San Diego.
