Medical and Surgical Oncology at Emory University Hospital Midtown

Medical oncology focuses on the treatment of cancer with medicine, including chemotherapy. Surgical oncology concentrates on the surgical aspects of cancer including biopsy, staging and surgical resection of malignancies.

Emory University Hospital Midtown medical and surgical oncologists have expertise in a complete range of cancer treatments including innovative drug therapies and state-of-the-art surgical techniques. Surgical techniques for the treatment of cancers involve both traditional surgery and newer methods such as Radiofrequency Ablation, which uses concentrated radiation therapy to cause a tumor to shrink over time.  This method has proven to be especially effective in the treatment of liver cancer.

Our specialists are among the nation's leaders in creating groundbreaking treatments for cancer, providing multi-modality cancer care developed through years of training and academic research.
