Surgical Oncology

Font ++ Click to Print

Surgical oncology is the subspecialty that encompasses the surgical treatment and management of patients with cancer. Surgical oncologists use many different surgical techniques to treat cancer, including open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, palliative treatments, radiofrequency ablation, and adjunct therapies (which are used in conjunction with a primary cancer treatment).

Our surgical oncologists work closely with gynecologic oncologists, thoracic surgeons and other cancer specialists at the Blumenthal Cancer Center. 

Gastrointestinal Cancers

Valley's surgical oncologists are skilled in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal cancers, including patients with hepatobiliary cancers (liver and bile ducts), pancreatic cancer, and gastro-esophageal cancer. They also treat patients with cancers of the colon, rectum, appendix, gall bladder, stomach, and small intestine, as well as cancers that have spread to the abdomen, such as ovarian cancer, and cancers that affect the peritoneum, the thin membrane that covers the abdominal and pelvic organs. These include pseudomyxoma peritonei and peritoneal mesothelioma. Learn more about services available at Valley's Center for Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery
