Soft Tissue Surgery
Cancer and Mass Removal
Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to ensure an extra margin of safety, especially for our older, high-risk, and pediatric patients. The patient's vital signs are monitored with respiratory monitors, EKGs and constant manual supervision during all anesthetic procedures.
Note: Having a sedated patient is a great time to trim nails, remove a mole, cut out mats and so forth.
Biopsy: For cancer patients, we may
recommend biopsies following up surgery to identify the type of cancer
present and also to see if cancer cells remain near the surgery site or
nearby lymph nodes.
For more surgery related information, please see the section Surgery FAQs under the menu item Other Features.
