Dr. Dean Nora 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.
- General Surgery
A surgical specialist is a physician who has additional training in a specific area of surgery.
The American Board of Medical Specialties acknowledges the following surgical specialties: general surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, colon and rectal surgery, obstetrics and gynecological surgery, neurological surgery, ophthalmic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngological surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery, and vascular surgery.
Some procedures are performed by more than one type of specialist. Also, some surgeons may choose to specialize in specific procedures within their specialty area. For example, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon may specialize in performing rhinoplasty procedures.

I am so thankful I received Dr. Nora as my surgeon. He answered all of my questions in detail, offered information I hadn't thought to ask, and demonstrated an impressively thorough understanding of breast cancer history. He also appears to stay up on the most recent medical research, which I greatly appreciate! I highly recommend him.
What has long been known is a highly expert can be conversed about. But upon face to face consultation the heart must be felt first, which develop confident and then a patient and doctor relationship is created. The practice is then accepted with ease, that leads to acknowledgement of a doctor's advice. Dr. Nora, is all of that with skills.
Dr. Nora performed stomach cancer surgery on me. He was the only doctor who clearly explained the diagnosis to me as well as my options, answered all my questions, and followed up for the past 2.5 years -- all in sure but sympathetic manner. He treated me as if I were an intelligent person, capable of understanding and worthy of being listened to. Previous doctors had been vague and not particularly helpful. He has my highest recommendation.
Dr. Nora is affiliated (can practice and admit patients) with the following hospital(s).
