The Division of General Surgery at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, includes a renowned group of fellowship-trained surgeons. Collectively, the division performs more than 1,700 operations annually.
Surgeons at Mayo Clinic provide state-of-the-art care to patients with oncologic and nononcologic diagnoses. Faculty members specialize in minimally invasive surgery of the liver, pancreas, endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, colon and rectum, and vascular system. In addition, they utilize advanced technologies such as intraoperative ultrasound, robotic surgery, and novel energy sources to aid in surgical excision. The division prides itself on the incorporation of innovative techniques to common surgical procedures.
Faculty provides modern, comprehensive care for both routine problems and tertiary and quaternary complex surgical cases. The Mayo Clinic model of care is a defining feature of our practice and provides the collaborative foundation for our approach to patient care by facilitating collegial relationships amongst all medical and surgical specialties. Together, this allows us to find the best treatment approach for each patient.
In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields.
