Comprehensive Surgical Options

Some of the surgical options at St. Joseph’s include:

Patients with brain and spinal cord tumors have access to St. Joseph's internationally known Barrow Neurological Institute. Barrow Neurological Institute is one of the largest neuroscience centers in the world, providing complete neurosurgery services for a variety of conditions.

Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery

Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEM) is an alternative to radical abdominal surgery for the removal of polyps and early stage cancer. TEM is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the removal of lesions in hard-to-reach areas that typically require major surgery.

Other surgical oncology options include:

  • Minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgery can be performed for many abdominal cancers
  • Image-guided cancer surgery and state-of-the-art sentinel lymph node biopsy are also performed for different types of cancer.
