Surgical Oncology

surgery

​Surgical oncologists provide surgical treatment for a wide range of cancers. These can include cancers involving the gastric, liver, bile duct, pancreatic, colorectal and skin systems, as well as sarcomas. You might need surgery to diagnose or remove a tumor, or to help ease symptoms caused by the cancer (palliative surgery). These doctors may also do a second surgery to reconstruct a body part that has been affected by a previous surgery, such as breast reconstruction. Presbyterian Cancer Care provides inpatient and outpatient services for patients with all types of cancers, and our surgeons are an important part of our comprehensive team approach to treatment. ​

All patient cases are reviewed at weekly multidisciplinary tumor board meetings that include breast surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and support staff. Our support staff includes nurse navigators, social workers, psychiatrists, nutritionists, palliative care specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and financial advocates.
