Welcome to Penn State Hershey Surgical Oncology
The surgeons in the Division of Surgical Oncology provide expert care for patients with benign and malignant tumors and other conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, intestines), liver, pancreas, biliary tract, endocrine organs (breasts, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, and adrenals), skin (melanoma), soft tissues (sarcoma), as well as metastatic lung disease.
