Our staff of board-certified surgeons is proficient in minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery, laser surgery and traditional open surgery for cancer treatment. Their expertise includes a full range of procedures, from the most frequent types of cancer surgeries to surgical treatments for more rare forms of the disease.
Certain cancer surgeries may be conducted using a robotic surgical system. This advanced method lets our specialists better visualize the surgical area and work with greater dexterity and control. Surgeons use electromechanically enhanced instruments, which enable more precision than in conventional surgery.
Because robotic surgery is minimally invasive, or conducted through small incisions, patients benefit from:
- less blood loss
- fewer transfusions
- less pain and risk of infection
- a shorter hospital stay
- less scarring
- faster recovery
- a quicker return to normal daily activities
Our advanced operating suites, outfitted with the most technologically up-to-date equipment, promote patient safety and best outcomes.
Recognized locally and nationally for our surgical treatment of cancer, we participate in cancer research studies. We are honored to have been named a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers® for our expertise in cancer surgical treatments, among other capabilities.
We focus on the human side of the surgical experience as well. In our patient-friendly operating rooms, nurses provide warm support within a calm and healing environment, known as the Sacred Space, that helps put patients at ease. Through soft music, scenic murals, dimmed lighting and our nurses’ gentle touch and dedicated attention, patients receive personal and comforting care.
