Surgical Cancer Services

A number of innovative minimally invasive surgical techniques are available for patients receiving cancer care and treatment at Athens Regional.

Surgical interventions are used to diagnose and treat many types of cancer, including those of the skin, breast, lung, gastrointestinal, prostate and kidney.

Our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to remove some cancer tumors and lymph nodes, as well as collect tissue for biopsy and to perform accurate staging studies to determine the best treatment plans.

Digital operating suites are available for many surgical procedures. Benefits of these specially designed rooms include allowing the surgeon to instantly view images for surgery as well as access additional radiology images, lab results, pathology findings and other clinical data.
