Surgery for Cancer in San Diego
Being diagnosed with any type of cancer is frightening. A cancer diagnosis can turn a person’s life upside down, as well as the lives of his or her family and loved ones.
The surgical oncology care team at Olde Del Mar Surgical believes that, of all of the worries cancer patients must face, the quality of their surgical cancer treatments should not be among them.
We provide the highest level of oncologic care available in San Diego. We give patients assurance, hope, and guidance as they move toward recovery. Our team includes Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul and Dr. Pascal Bortz, the medical and radiation oncologists, and access to the tumor board at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.

An Overview of Oncology
Oncology is the branch of medicine that deals with cancer and tumors. Cancer typically develops when normal, healthy cells undergo some sort of genetic mutation.
These mutations are usually triggered by carcinogens, or cancer-causing agents. In many cases, they can also be traced to genetics.
While cancer is not always life threatening, it is vital that anyone with remote suspicion of cancer contact our practice and schedule a consultation with one of our surgical oncologists.
