Surgical Oncology

Oncologic surgery is employed to diagnose stage and treat cancer. Sibley’s surgical oncologists are highly skilled specialists engaging the latest techniques and treatments to treat a variety of cancers. Where possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, including robotic surgery. This method provides advantages to patients such as less blood loss, shorter or no hospital stays and quicker recovery and return to normal activities. Our surgeons perform numerous surgeries for the following cancers:

  • Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma
  • Breast
  • Colon
  • Gynecological
  • Lung
  • Skin - Melanoma
  • Urologic, including prostate
  • Gynecological
