The Surgery and Oncology Program is a leader in its field, providing high quality care to meet the diverse surgical needs of our catchment area and the wider community. As a university affiliated program, the Surgical and Oncology Program offers a range of care and procedures from thoracic and general surgery to gynaecology and ophthalmology and urology. Patients from infancy to the elderly are cared for by our exceptional team of surgeons, anaesthetists, health professionals and support staff. Our Program has ten operating rooms and three inpatient units.
Our focus on minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has resulted in our program being a recognized national leader in this evolving field. Gynecology and general surgery are two areas where the program is an acknowledged leader. St. Joseph’s Health Centre is the first choice of University of Toronto surgical residents.
In partnership with five hospitals, our Surgery and Oncology Services developed the Toronto Vascular Surgical Program in 2006. As part of this new Program, we transferred our vascular surgical volume to the University Health Network. We worked with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Cancer Care Ontario to reduce waiting lists for persons requiring cataract surgery, hip and knee replacement, and surgery for various cancers.
