Department of Surgery

Welcome to the Department of Surgery. We are five divisions, each with its own team of specialists, and all dedicated to both the practice of medicine and the pursuit of education. As a research-based hospital, our commitment is to do more than provide the most innovative care. We are here to push for the answers that become tomorrow’s game-changers.

A history rich in surgical tradition instilled in our hospital a love of the art of medicine. Transforming that art into the science that changes people’s lives is the passion we have the honor of calling a profession. It’s so much more than patient care. It truly is the love of humanity that drives what we do.

We are here to improve the surgical care of patients throughout Oklahoma and to provide the finest quality surgical education to our fellows, residents, and students who will take a higher standard of care out into the world.
