Why choose us
Our experienced oncology surgical subspecialists have collectively performed thousands of procedures, from minimally invasive surgeries to robot-assisted treatments for rare and complex tumors. Our surgeons are at the forefront of surgical advances, such as specializing in the latest minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures and robotic-assisted techniques. Our primary goals are to minimize recovery time, shorten your hospital stay, maximize your path to wellness and optimize your quality of life.
Minimally invasive approach
Recognized nationally for their pioneering work, our surgeons use advanced technologies to perform highly precise, minimally invasive surgery. Benefits of this approach include:
- Less postoperative pain
- A lower risk of infection
- Minimal scarring
- Decreased blood loss
- Improved recovery times
- Earlier discharge from hospital
Specifically, our surgical staff has expertise in minimally invasive robotic surgical treatments, which we use for prostate, kidney, colon, esophageal, liver, pancreas, cervical, lung and thoracic cancers. We were among the first in the Northeast to offer robotic hysterectomy and myomectomy.
Other minimally invasive approaches we use include:
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
- Minimally invasive endoscopy surgery
Honors and awards
