Dr. Avram M Cooperman 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.

saved my life

Dr Cooperman was my surgeon in 2002 for an insulinoma on my pancreas. His expertise in this field save my life. He is possibly one of the very best doctors I have had in my life- and believe I have had a lot of doctors! He not only removed the tumor, but also my gall bladder. Recovery was hard, yet he took the time to call me at home and check on me. Ive lost touch with him over the years, but I just wanted to say thank you again for giving me back my life.

Alive inspite of major arrogance and mistake

I am sorry to see this man is still practicing- he once told me a lump in my breast wasn't cancer because he could tell by feeling it. I went a year without treatment and finally INSISTED it come out- surprise- wrong. That meant aggressive chemo, no children for me either, and I found out 7 of the 9 women he made similar mistakes with are dead. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Don't fall for the charm.

If you are looking for the best in pancreatic cancer, than this is the doctor. He along with Dr Wayne, saved my mothers life when other doctors told us there was no hope.
