Cancer surgery is performed by general surgeons with extensive oncology experience and training, as well as by thoracic surgeons, neurosurgeons, urologists, OB/GYNs and other specialists.
Sinai-Grace Hospital offers comprehensive surgical capabilities for the diagnosis and treatment of most types of cancer:
The Department of Surgery includes surgeons with extensive oncology experience and training, as well as thoracic surgeons, neurosurgeons, gynecologic oncologic surgeons and breast surgery specialists among others.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures are used when appropriate. Breast surgeons staff the hospital's Breast Care Center to diagnose breast cancer. They may also work with medical and radiation oncologists, as well as counselors, as part of a multidisciplinary breast care team.
Sinai-Grace Hospital offers robotic surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. It provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
After surgery, patients may be cared for on our award-winning Surgical Intensive Care Unit. The unit has been recognized for the quality of its care by a national organization. It is staffed by physicians who have completed critical care fellowships and by specially trained ICU nurses.
