Our expert cancer surgeons diagnose, treat and prevent cancer by removing tumors and surrounding tissue. They may also perform biopsies, taking a small amount of tissue for pathologists to analyze. Surgical oncologists work in a multidisciplinary fashion with partners including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, anesthesia, radiology, pathology, psychiatry and psychology, nutrition, social work and our superb nursing staff to deliver patient-centered care.
Our cancer surgeons, including surgical oncology, breast surgical oncology, colorectal surgery, thoracic surgery, gynecologic oncology, and urology, are on staff at BID-Needham and at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
