Sharp HealthCare offers surgery for various types of cancer. For some patients, surgery may be the best choice for evaluation and treatment of their cancer. Surgical oncology procedures can be used to obtain tissue samples, confirm diagnosis, identify a specific cancer and determine the extent of the disease.
Surgery is also used to remove malignant and nonmalignant tumors; treat solid tumors like those found in the breast, colon or lung; and correct problems that create discomfort or disability. In addition to traditional surgical procedures, Sharp-affiliated surgeons perform robotic surgery to treat many kinds of cancer.
