Surgery is an integral aspect of care for many oncology patients. Depending on the type of disease, doctors can use surgery to diagnose, treat, or determine the stage of a cancer. In some cases, doctors may use surgery to prevent future cancer development in high-risk patients. Today, robotic technology and minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures can lower the impact of surgery on our patients. With faster healing times, smaller incisions, and better results, these advanced techniques ensure our patients have the best care available on their journey to recovery.
