The removal of tumors or cancerous tissue is often just one step in cancer treatment. At Lee Health, surgeons work as part of a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists to provide you with a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan.
Surgery may be performed through a traditional open procedure, a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure or robotic surgery.
These surgical specialists include:
- breast surgeons
- cardiothoracic surgeons
- colorectal surgeons
- general surgeons
- gynecologic oncologists
- orthopedic surgeons
Specially trained oncology nurses, nurse navigators, pharmacists and genetic counselors are there for you, both while you're in the hospital and afterwards at the Regional Cancer Center.
