Surgical oncology focuses on the surgical management of cancer. At MMC Cancer Institute, we have a team of surgical oncologists with training and experience that is unmatched in the state. As a referral center for some of the most complex cancer cases in the area, our expertise offers much-needed hope to patients and their families in a convenient and close-to-home setting.
The more cancer cases a surgeon treats, the more proficient he or she becomes, and patients experience improved survival rates as a result. MMC Cancer Institute's oncology surgeons perform more of every type of cancer surgery than any other hospital in Maine, a volume level that translates into patient outcomes that consistently meet or exceed national benchmarks.
In addition, MMC provides:
- Comprehensive surgical treatment by Board certified surgical oncologists for both primary and metastatic liver and pancreatic cancer
- Comprehensive treatment of colorectal cancer by Board certified colorectal surgeons and other skilled oncology surgeons
