Cancer Treatment in Alaska

Alaska Surgical Oncology is a unique specialty practice that combines compassionate care with advanced surgical removal of benign and malignant tumors.

We interface with your primary care, family practice physician and those physicians involved in your diagnosis and current care plan. This can include medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and other clinical specialists.

Alaska Surgical Oncology addresses cancer and tumor diagnosis within the body, and including: esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, rectum, abdomen, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, breast, skin and soft tissue, and endocrine system.

As it related specifically to breast cancer and breast tumor, at Alaska Surgical Oncology we realize that treatment needs to emphasize all efforts to preserve the cosmetic appearance of the breast where possible.
