Surgical Oncology

Most often, the surgeon, through surgical exploration and biopsies makes the diagnosis of cancer. Their expertise is essential as the first line of treatment. Teams of highly skilled surgical specialists at Beaumont Hospitals deliver the most advanced treatments using the latest technology as well as innovative, minimally invasive techniques. Our surgeons have trained throughout the world, and bring to Beaumont the skills to treat virtually any type of cancer.

As a key component of Beaumont's multidisciplinary cancer team, surgeons work closely with medical and radiation oncology specialists, as well reconstructive surgeons and genetic counselors, to plan and provide the most effective treatment strategy for each patient.

Our dedication to minimally invasive options helps preserve healthy tissue. It also maximizes patient comfort and promotes quicker recovery times than traditional surgeries - all without compromising treatment effectiveness.

Beaumont oncologists offer a variety of minimally invasive techniques for diagnosing and surgically treating cancers, including:

  • Advanced laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgeries
  • Robotic surgery
  • Lymphatic mapping and sentinel lymph node techniques
  • Tumor removal with reconstruction

Clinical trials are also available for appropriate patients and patients may be presented at our multidisciplinary tumor board to recommend the best possible treatment. Learn more about research and clinical trials at Beaumont.

We show our commitment to clinical and basic science research through participation in the American College of Surgeons Surgical Oncology Group. The Marcia & Eugene Applebaum Simulation Learning Institute at Beaumont allows surgeons to refine and teach surgical skills applicable to minimally invasive surgery. The center is accredited as a Level One training site for robotic surgery using the DaVinci system, further evidence of Beaumont's leadership in surgical technologies, education and research.
