Advanced Surgical Oncology

Complex cancers are managed using a multidisciplinary approach involving sophisticated pre-operative, operative and post-operative techniques that are overseen by medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and a specially trained, board certified surgical oncologist.

Advanced oncology surgeries include:

  • Endorectal ultrasound in conjunction with sphincter-saving surgery for rectal cancers
  • Extensive resections for soft tissue sarcomas
  • Gastric malignancies
  • Lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymphadenectomy for malignantmelanomas - procedure that allows the surgeon to target lymph nodes to which cancer has spread and to remove only those which require it.
  • Management of pancreatic and biliary tumors
  • Primary and medastatic liver tumors
