Our surgical oncology team provides innovative cancer treatment, close to home
Our comprehensive cancer treatment team at Phelps includes many specialists to personalize your treatment plan. Surgical oncologists may be part of your personal care team. If your doctor decides that your care plan should include surgery, the surgical oncology team at Phelps will use cutting-edge technology and innovative procedures for your treatment. Some of our areas of expertise are:
Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery
Robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Xi Surgical System is at the forefront of medical technology. Using this system, your surgeon can remove tumors and nodules with more control and precision and you may recover from surgery more quickly.
Surgeons can treat lung and thoracic cancer using procedures such as wedge or segmental resection, lobectomy, pneumectomy, or esophagectomy. Thoracic surgeons may use robot or video- assisted procedures.
Breast Cancer Surgery
The Northwell Health Breast Care Center of Westchester uses innovative surgical techniques and the radar guidance system SAVI SCOUT to treat breast cancer, led by regional director of breast surgery Alice M. Police, M.D.
Our surgical oncologists can treat urological cancers, such as kidney cancer, with laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
Benefits of robotic surgery include less blood loss, decreased pain, faster recovery time, shorter hospital stay, and smaller incisions and scars.
