Surgery is a critical component of cancer care. Cancer treatment most often cannot begin unless a surgical biopsy has been performed to confirm the diagnosis. Some patients can be cured with a surgical procedure alone, but most require surgery in combination with either chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both.
At Exeter Hospital, our Core surgeons work collaboratively with affiliated pathologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists to develop the most comprehensive treatment plans for our patients. And our medical staff works to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your procedure.
Surgical interventions are provided for the following specific diagnoses:
- Breast Cancer
- Head and Neck/ Thyroid Cancer
- Gastrointestinal Cancers
- Gynecological Cancers
- Thoracic Cancers (Lung, Esophageal)
- Skin Cancers
- Urologic (Prostate/ Urinary Tract) Cancers
