Having surgery to remove a cancerous tumor can be an overwhelming experience. Surgical oncologists at Sutter Cancer Centers offer comprehensive surgical care to cancer patients throughout the greater Sacramento region. These highly experienced, board-certified surgeons work with your medical oncologist or radiation oncologist to develop the most effective treatment plan for your specific condition.
From bladder and kidney cancer to skin cancer, surgical oncologists use advanced surgical techniques to minimize pain while encouraging fewer complications and faster recovery times. Such techniques at Sutter Cancer Centers include laparoscopy, laser ablation surgery, thermal ablation therapy, cryosurgery and the Sugarbaker procedure.
Minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci Xi robotic-assisted surgical system offers a clearer view of your cancer through micro-incisions made on your body. In 2014, Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento, home of Sutter Cancer Centers, became the first hospital in California to use the newest generation of the da Vinci system. The system allows surgeons to make extremely precise movements, which are particularly valuable for prostate, gynecological and kidney cancers.
Sutter Cancer Centers in Auburn, Modesto, Roseville, Sacramento and Vallejo are certified by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer signifying that they meet the stringent guidelines and reporting standards set forth by the commission.
