Specialties

Dr. Brian J Ohea 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.

Breast cancer DCIS 1999

In 1999, Dr O'Hea diagnosed my DCIS. Although I thought I could have a lumpectomy, as I thought all breast cancers could be removed this way, he urged me to promise I would follow through with other opinions But he stressed that a mastectomy was the right thing to do for my type of cancer. He said I might find other doctors who would be less apt to do that but it would not remove completely my cancer. To this day I thank him for the treatment and diagnosis he gave me it has been 15 years for me. Thank you so much Dr O Hea breast Surgeon

The Man To See on LI for Breast Cancer Issues and Concerns

Another surgeon on LI referred me to Dr. O'Hea. He stated that he was the man to see on LI for breast surgery if I decided to choose the mammosite radiation procedure. I had 5 opinions prior to my surgery. I did my homework. Dr. O'Hea and the Carol Baldwin Breast Center are the pinnacle of breast care and surgical options for women on LI. I would highly recommend Dr. O'Hea for all who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. His assistant is also especially caring and knowledgeable.
