Specialties

Dr. Dilip S Kittur 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.

as a young mother going in for a big surgery I was obviously very scared. Dr Kittur was a wonderful surgeon...he not only left a good looking incision--he was also very kind and compassionate....not something you often find with a surgeon. I would highly reccommend him to anyone who is in need of surgery.
