Surgeons at Christ Medical Center are some of the most experienced in their fields, having pioneered some of the techniques commonly used today to treat cancers throughout the body. Depending on the characteristics of each patient's disease, our surgeons may use minimally invasive surgical techniques or more traditional open surgery. With either approach, our goal is to remove as much cancerous tissue as possible with minimal disruption to healthy tissue and surrounding organs. In some cases, our experienced team can provide surgical options for individuals whose cancers were considered "inoperable" at other hospitals.
In addition to being at the forefront of developing trends and research, surgeons at Christ Medical Center undergo aggressive external review. In fact, our surgeons' high standards of quality and multi-disciplinary cancer care have earned them designation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
