Surgical Oncology offers surgical treatment for specific cancers, including:

  • Gastrointestinal tumors
  • Soft tissue tumors
  • Skin cancers

Our Surgical Oncologists

Our highly experienced surgical oncologists perform surgical treatment for cancer. The surgeons are trained to treat various cancers through surgical means. Our medical and radiation oncologists partner to ensure the best cancer care for our patients. A team of oncologists is frequently involved in surgical treatment for cancer. After surgery, many patients need more treatment such as radiation or chemotherapy.

​Summit Medical Group patients in Northern New Jersey and the New York Metropolitan area also have access to enhanced cancer treatment, as part of our partnership with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.  This program, which provides medical oncology, infusion and diagnostic imaging, is already in place at Summit Medical Group’s flagship campus at 1 Diamond Hill Road in Berkeley Heights. It includes MD Anderson’s world-renowned treatment protocols, extensive clinical trials and cutting-edge research. 

Cancer Surgery

Whenever possible, your surgical oncologist uses minimally invasive laparoscopy to evaluate and treat tumors. Usually, the goal of surgery is to remove as much of the cancerous tissue and tumors as possible without interfering with healthy functions in the body.

What is cancer?

The term cancer applies to a group of diseases that result from the abnormal growth of cells in the body. Unlike normal cells, cancer cells can start in one place in the body and spread to other tissues. Although many of the more than 100 different kinds of cancer can be life threatening, now there are effective treatments to cure and manage cancer in some cases.

Abnormal cancer cells usually create a tumor, but in some cases such as leukemia, cancer cells circulate through the blood. Whether cancer spreads through the blood or through cell growth, the spread is a process called metastasis.

Some cancers are hereditary. Other cancers result from environmental or behavioral factors such as cigarette smoking. The cause of some cancers is still unknown.
