SurgeryAs part of the cancer care multidisciplinary team, our surgeons coordinate care with oncologists, radiologists and pathologists to help decide the best course of treatment for each patient.
Surgery is a common cancer treatment for breast, prostate, colorectal and other cancers. Surgery may be performed for prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of cancer. Surgery may be the sole treatment, or combined with other cancer treatments such as radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Some surgeries may require hospitalization and other surgeries can be done as outpatient procedures.
MemorialCare’s skilled surgeons provide the highest quality of care. Our surgical centers are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to enable the most advanced surgical procedures to be performed.
