Watch a video of Jenn Brady sharing her experiences at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be a moment of personal crisis. We understand this. We are a determined and skillful team – a team you will want on your side.

Our surgical oncologists are specialists in the surgical treatment of cancer. We operate out of multiple locations throughout UC San Diego Health, including Moores Cancer Center. Moores Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center; the only cancer center with this esteemed credential in the region.

Our surgeons are redefining the surgical treatment of cancer. With robotic technology, combined therapies, scarless surgery techniques and other minimally invasive procedures, we are fighting cancer in advanced and aggressive ways. At UC San Diego Health, you have access to clinical trials to assess new cancer treatment regimens via the fully integrated translational oncology program. As part of multidisciplinary cancer treatment units, our surgeons work side-by-side with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, plastic/reconstructive surgeons, genetic counselors, oncology nursing staff and social workers to provide comprehensive care.
