Dr. Cristina R Ferrone 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.

I was referred to Dr. Ferrone by my out of state gastroenterologist. When I called to make the appointment I was treated with such kindness and respect I almost couldn't believe it! The willingness to accommodate was something I am not used to. Especially in Boston! I was squeezed in the following Tuesday and I have to say I was so impressed! Dr. Ferrone & AJ (her assistant and shining gem of her practice) were superb! Dr. Ferrone was knowledgeable, patient and very charming! The whipple was a success and I actually look and feel great! I totally recommend.
