Ensuring our patients have the best chance to beat cancer may include consulting with a surgeon. Surgery may offer the best chance to effectively treat many types of cancer, such as those originating in the breast, skin, thyroid, gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, and colon. Sometimes surgery is used to diagnose cancer or after a diagnosis is established, surgery may support other forms of treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation.
Our surgical oncologists are experts in helping patients with cancer. They are board certified in general surgery and have undergone two years of additional specialty fellowship training in cancer surgery. They work together with a multidisciplinary cancer care team to consult on uncommon and complex cancers.
