Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is specialized surgery used to diagnose, treat or manage cancer. Your care team may recommend surgery to:

  • Collect tissue samples for biopsy
  • Diagnose cancer, including the type and stage
  • Remove cancer cells, including all or part of affected organs, soft tissue or bones
  • Prevent cancer from spreading
  • Reduce the risk of cancer returning
  • Relieve pain or implement treatment devices

A surgical oncologist will oversee your procedure. Many of today’s minimally invasive approaches need fewer incisions (cuts), and offer better precision with faster recovery. PeaceHealth offers many choices and the latest advances in care, including robotic-assisted surgery.

What to expect

Your surgical oncologist works closely with your care team to create a treatment plan that’s right for you. You’ll learn about surgical choices; what to expect before, during and after the procedure; and the risks and benefits of surgery.
