Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology uses surgery for cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment. It focuses on finding harmful tumors in your body and removing them.

This specialty is usually found in large metropolitan cities. But now it’s available in the North State, allowing you to get top-quality care close to home.

Enloe’s Surgical Oncology Program offers the latest treatment for an array of cancers. This includes pancreatic cancer — the third-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.
