Surgical oncology is a specialty branch of surgery focusing on the management of benign and malignant tumors.
The management of many types of cancers can be quite complex and surgical oncologists undergo advanced rigorous training to diagnose, manage and operate appropriately on difficult tumors. They work closely with medical and radiation oncologists to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for each and every patient.
At Southcoast, we have successfully performed complex operations on a wide spectrum of cancers, from pancreatic, liver, gastric and colorectal cancers, to breast and skin cancers. We are also committed to using new technologies when appropriate and have implemented several new programs in the past year to bring the latest advances to the Southcoast region
