Surgery for Cancer

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. We give patients assurance, hope, and guidance as they move toward recovery. Our team includes Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul, the medical and radiation oncologists, and access to the tumor board at Scripps Memorial Hospital.

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.

Cancer Treatments

Our cancer specialists identify the presence of cancer, diagnose its specific type and extent, and devise a comprehensive course of treatment. At the leading edge in treatments and options, Olde Del Mar Surgical’s cancer surgeons deals with the full range of cancer types, including pancreatic and gastric cancer.

While pancreatic and gastric cancers are not among the most common types of cancer, they are among the most challenging to treat. Early detection gives oncologists the best chance to treat the cancer successfully.

Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul has extensive experience in the treatment of colon cancer, small bowel cancer, and esophageal cancer.
