Specialties

Dr. Alvaro A Valle has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Valle, with my initial appointment. He was a wonderful surprise for me. I did not expect the caring,compassionate, thorough individual that he was. I knew right away that my husband was also going to be impressed with him. (My husband is very hard to impress) I just wanted to say that he was so professional, and thorough. He made me feel as if i was his only patient.
