Cancer Surgery

Expert care for patients needing surgery for cancer

Surgical Care at Anna Jaques Hospital

Surgery may be part of your treatment plan at any stage in your cancer journey. Your care team at Anna Jaques Hospital may recommend it to prevent or diagnose cancer, determine how much it has spread and remove tumors.

Our highly skilled surgical oncologists use high-definition (HD) cameras and minimally invasive techniques in the operating room to provide the most precise surgeries possible.

Anna Jaques Cancer Center offers surgical options for treating various cancers. When appropriate, minimally invasive surgery benefits patients by offering less scarring, less pain, a shorter hospital stay, less injury to tissue and a higher accuracy rate. Your cancer surgeon may opt for a minimally invasive approach called robotic-assisted surgery. This approach uses robotic tools that provide greater control in hard-to-reach and hard-to-see places.

Our affiliation with Beth Israel Lahey Health also means seamless access to more advanced surgical treatment in Boston when needed.

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic and reconstructive surgeries at Anna Jaques can help when cancer or cancer treatment has caused scars, defects or malformations.

These surgeries can reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or transplant bone or tissue to replace a damaged area. Surgery could help you regain your confidence, feel better about your appearance and restore a positive outlook about the future.
