The Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care

Surgical Oncology is part of the Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care. Our Cancer Center offers the community the opportunity to receive high-quality care with state-of-the-art technology right in their own neighborhood.

Our multidisciplinary Approach to Treatment

Surgical oncology is a diverse division with subspecialists in a variety of surgical fields including breast, gastrointestinal, hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB), endocrine, thoracic, urology, gynecology, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, and orthopaedic surgery. Plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons, dermatologists, and oral surgeons also play vital roles in the surgical care of cancer patients.

The Division of Surgical Oncology at St. Vincent’s is dedicated to promoting the highest quality of surgical care in a multidisciplinary fashion. This requires close collaboration with our medical and radiation oncology colleagues as well as our nursing and support staff. The core of this effort is our tumor conference where surgical oncologists play an active role by frequently presenting cases seeking additional input.

State-Of-The-Art Care in a Healing Environment

Our new inpatient unit on 9 South is the latest addition and is focused on quality, safety and compassion. Attention is given to spiritual and emotional well being in addition to physical healing.
