Surgery is the main treatment for many types of cancer. In some instances, the surgeon can provide a cure by removing a tumor. In others, surgery can decrease a patient's discomfort level or improve longevity.
The surgical oncologists at Spectrum Health Medical Group are dedicated to treating patients with compassion and care. Every patient is treated to timely, comprehensive medical treatment tailored to their individual needs.
We offer our patients treatment options that reflect the latest research and technology as well as the most up-to-date standards of care in the specialty of surgical oncology. With the caliber of care available at Spectrum Health Medical Group, patients take comfort in knowing that they don't have to travel out of West Michigan to receive expert care to treat their cancer. Our goal is to provide each cancer patient with the best possible surgical outcomes in their overall cancer treatment plan.
