A cancer diagnosis is something nobody wants to face, but when it happens, surgery may be part of the treatment plan. And if that’s the case, your general surgeon will work in concert with your oncologist to come up with a comprehensive plan to fight the cancer and get you on the road to recovery.
Our general surgeons frequently perform oncology surgery to treat a variety of cancers that occur in organs throughout the body, including:
We provide a full scope of surgical oncology services ranging from Mediport insertions for infusions of chemotherapy all the way up to major resections with possible reconstruction. Following your surgery, Surgical Associates of WNY will stay connected throughout treatment. We work in concert with oncologists regularly to ensure patients are doing well and that the best treatment options have been implemented. You can count on your surgeon to stay in the loop and provide the best care throughout this difficult time.
When you come in for your appointment, don’t hesitate to bring a list of questions and a close family member or friend. Building a support network and getting all the information you need is a key step in this process.
