Advances in surgical cancer treatment make it possible for many tumors to be safely and effectively removed, sometimes with minimally invasive techniques (like VATS and robotic surgery) and less recovery time. Combined with chemotherapy, radiation and other cancer treatments, surgery can offer improved outcomes for patients with: Breast cancer Colorectal cancer Lung cancer Prostate cancer Skin cancer Other types of cancer Our surgeons participate in multidisciplinary clinics, where experts across all pertinent specialties see patients simultaneously. These meetings provide a unique opportunity for patients to be seen by a broad spectrum of specialists in "real time." These clinics also allow our surgeons to consult with experts in other specialties – including radiology, pathology and medical oncology – through weekly tumor boards to provide patients with the complete continuum of care.
