As a key component of Lima Memorial’s multidisciplinary cancer team, surgical oncologists work closely with medical and radiation oncology specialists and the entire cancer team to plan and provide the most effective treatment strategy for each patient. The surgical oncology specialty focuses on the surgical management of all types of cancerous tumors, both malignant and benign. This includes the removal of tumors, often in a minimally invasive manner. Following National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines, the surgical oncologist takes special care to preserve healthy tissue without compromising treatment effectiveness.
