When you’re facing a cancer diagnosis, it’s easy to feel alone. But with Emory Clinic doctors, you have a team of experts on your side every step of the way. Our medical, radiation and surgical oncologists work closely with you and your family to carry out a treatment plan personalized to your needs.
Emory Clinic surgical oncologists are involved in your care from the very beginning, performing minimally invasive biopsies to test for cancer. Surgical oncologists also often provide the first stage of treatment: surgery to remove tumors and cancer cells. We’re committed to getting rid of cancer while leaving as many healthy cells as possible and minimizing the effects of surgery. We provide the latest surgical treatments, including:
- Radiofrequency ablation to destroy cancer cells without invasive surgery
- Oncoplastic surgery to remove breast cancer cells without mastectomy (breast removal).
- Laparoscopic pancreatectomy to remove pancreatic cancer tumors using only small incisions.
