Message from Division Chief


Dr. Martin Fleming

The Division of Surgical Oncology was formalized within the UTHSC Department of Surgery in 2011. Since then, we have grown and expanded our scope and expertise. We now have eleven faculty in the division working in multiple hospital systems in Memphis. This growth has allowed us to be increasing subspecialized in a variety of cancer types to provide the highest level of care to our patients.

Some of these areas of expertise are: hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery, breast surgery, melanoma surgery, gastric surgery, esophageal surgery, sarcoma surgery, colon and rectal surgery, endocrine surgery and HIPEC.

We feel strongly that the best cancer care is provided through multidisciplinary collaboration with radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, radiology, nursing and other cancer services. Active participation in weekly tumor specific conferences to plan multidisciplinary care is a regular part of our practice.

Many of our faculty also serve on national and international committees in cancer care allowing us access to the most current research and state of the art treatment options. Through these efforts we strive to bring the highest level of cancer care to our patients, the city of Memphis and the Mid-South region. A cancer diagnosis is one of the most difficult, stressful times in the life of a patient, and we consider it a privilege to be part of that journey with them.
