Dr. Stefanie Ueda's primary interests at UCSF are ovarian cancer, robotic surgery, uterine serous cancer, biologically targeted therapies and international health. During the last two years she has pioneered a program in Uganda's Mulago Hospital and Makerere University aimed at improving cancer care and surgical training in an effort to treat the 80-100 patients seen on the oncology ward each week. She is helping to revolutionize treatment and outcomes with the introduction of twice-weekly ward rounds, a follow-up outpatient clinic and telemedicine consultation via e-mail and Skype. In spite of limited resources, she hopes to introduce chemotherapy and improve laparoscopic and surgical capabilities.
