Our surgical oncologists provide care for patients with cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. These specially-trained surgeons direct the preoperative evaluation, definitive operative treatment, and long-term postoperative care of patients.
Using a fully integrated multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of cancer, our surgical oncologists work closely with Stony Brook's radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and gynecological oncologists.
Our participation in national clinical trials allows us to use the latest in therapeutic advances for the care of different cancers — and this gives our patients the only opportunity available in Suffolk County to benefit from such studies.
