Why Choose Us?

Our Mission:

To provide expert knowledge, surgical skills and personalized treatment plans for the prevention and treatment of cancer thus enhancing the lives of patients in Bexar County and the South Texas region.

What is surgical oncology and what is the role of the surgical oncologist?

Many patients and physicians are not fully aware of the surgical sub-specialty of surgical oncology and their role in the management of patients with cancer or pre-cancerous conditions. It is important that patients and referring physicians appreciate the benefits of having a surgical oncologist provide surgical care for patients diagnosed with cancer as well as patients at high risk for the development of cancer.

Choosing a surgeon to assist in the treatment of cancer is one of the biggest decisions many patients will ever make. Surgical Oncology Associates features one of the most experienced and highly regarded team of cancer caregivers in South Texas.

  • In many cases, two or more specialty trained cancer surgeons are in the operating room (we’re likely the only practice in South Texas that offers this level of care).
