  • Breast Cancer – Though a common and serious cancer for women, breast cancer has become much more treatable in recent years. We have numerous imaging tests that can detect breast cancer in the early stages so that we can begin an aggressive treatment plan.
  • Colorectal Cancer – Also referred to as colon or rectal cancer, these cancers usually begin as polyps in the small intestine. Blood in stool and strange bowel habits may be warning signs of colorectal cancer.
  • Pancreatic Cancer – Pancreatic cancer can spread rapidly, which is why it is important to have it diagnosed early. It does not often manifest symptoms in the early stages, but you may want to ask for a screening if there is a history of pancreatic cancer in your family. Our Pancreatic Surgery department is ranked first in the nation by the Joint Commission.
