Advanced surgical and interventional procedures for cancer treatment

Your surgical and interventional oncology team provides a full range of cancer services ranging from Mediport insertions for infusions of chemotherapy to major resections with possible reconstructive surgery. We also take a very proactive approach to removing cancer at the very earliest detection. Our GI team performs endoscopic resection/ablation for precancerous GI lesions – before cancer cells can cause harm.

We provide innovative treatment solutions such as intraperitoneal chemotherapy, which combines the surgical removal of all visible tumors and the placement of chemotherapy directly to the area of cancer to kill any remaining cancer cells. In partnership with our interventional radiology team, Riverside cancer care provides leading-edge treatments such as SIR-Spheres Y-90, directly delivering radiation therapy to tumors.
