Surgery can be an integral part of cancer care. From removing a tumor or diseased tissue to placing radiation delivery devices inside the body and plastic surgery or reconstruction, there are many reasons for which surgical care may be necessary.
At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, our medical professionals have the experience, expertise and access to latest, most sophisticated surgical equipment to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Surgical care for Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center patients is provided inside Banner Gateway Medical Center, a sister facility conveniently located on the same medical campus that serves as an extension of the Banner MD Anderson outpatient facility.
Banner Gateway is a state-of-the-art hospital featuring a modern, technologically advanced surgical area, housing some of the latest technologies, including electronic medical records, electronic monitoring systems and high-definition video systems that provide greater clarity during surgery.
In addition, we employ surgical robotics to provide a less invasive approach to surgery for appropriate patients. These highly sophisticated computer-driven surgical robotic tools, which are operated by surgeons, are praised for resulting in less pain, reduced risk of infection and speedier recoveries.
