Oncology Surgery

Overview

The specialized discipline of surgical oncology involves treating cancer through the removal of tumors and tissues. The oldest and most common form of cancer treatment, surgery can involve the simple removal of a small tumor, which offers the greatest chance for a cure especially if the cancer has not yet spread to other parts of the body.

Surgery may also be performed in order to:

  • Prevent the spread of cancer by removing nonmalignant body tissue before it becomes malignant
  • Diagnose cancer using a biopsy to obtain a tissue sample
  • Evaluate the extent, size and type of cancer
  • Relieve pain caused by advanced cancer through palliative procedures

Advances in technology allow surgeons to use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to reduce the risk and discomfort associated with traditional surgery. Our highly skilled surgeons span the spectrum of specialty care and work closely with other medical professionals to provide efficient, effective care.
