Many cancer patients need surgery to remove cancerous tumors and growths. Your care team can help you decide if surgery is part of your cancer treatment plan. Each surgery is personalized and carefully planned using advanced imaging technology.
You may undergo cancer surgery before or after chemotherapy or radiation therapy. When tumors are in complicated locations, such as around large blood vessels or in your brain, shrinking the tumor can make surgery safer and more effective.
At Ellis Medicine, we strive to use the least invasive form of surgery to remove cancer. Minimally invasive procedures such as robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and endoscopic surgery use small incisions. These procedures have faster recovery times and lower risks than open surgeries with large incisions.
The surgeons at Ellis Medicine are dedicated to your care. As part of your cancer team, they will work closely with your medical oncologist and radiation oncologist to create the best treatment plan for you.
