Surgical Oncology and Consultation
Cancer surgery is performed for a variety of reasons: to remove or shrink a solid tumor, ease pain, remove obstructions caused by cancer, or repair an area of the body damaged by cancer. At Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center at Milford Regional Medical Center, DF/BWCC thoracic surgeons care for patients with lung cancer. Surgical support and consultations with experts from Brigham and Women’s Hospital are available for patients with gynecological and gastrointestinal cancers. Depending on your needs and preferences, cancer surgery may be scheduled at Milford Regional Medical Center or at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
