The main focus of our team is you. We offer our patients and referring providers the latest advances in surgery and cancer treatment, including robotic minimally invasive surgery, enhanced recovery, cancer genetics and prevention, clinical trials, and supportive services conveniently located here at home in South Florida.
Surgery does not always have to produce large scars and prolonged recovery times with a reliance on opioids and narcotics and all their side effects. Cancer care does not have to be a cookbook “one-size-fits-all” approach void of compassion. Each person and each cancer patient is unique. We personally tailor the care of our patients with the latest advances in precision medicine and genetics. We minimize incisions with robotically assisted and minimally invasive multimodality surgical techniques.
We enhance surgical recovery for a shorter time to return to normal activity without relying on narcotics and opioids for pain prevention and control. We offer all of our cancer patients the opportunity to enroll in clinical trials if they are interested in doing so. If the best treatment is not available locally, our team will assist the patient to go to the research center that offers that experimental treatment. Meeting the needs of our patients and referring providers is our top priority, and it is our highest privilege to have the opportunity to care for our patients and to serve our referring providers.
