Specialties

Dr. Dwight C De Risi 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 love him and Dr. Silberman both. Feel so lucky that I stumbled on the best doctor in the world and the best plastic surgeon when I discovered I had breast cancer. It hasn't been an easy trip -- but with the two of them I feel blessed and am extremely grateful. You are the Best of Best :)

Five Stars

Dr. DeRisi is great (and so is his staff). Dr. DeRisi is a surgeon with exceptional skills, skills he has mastered over a lifetime of practicing which have made him to be one of a kind, not only professionaly (as a doctor), but also humanely (as a comunicator). After over 40 years of contribution, patients in need for the most skilled operating hands are lucky that doctors like him are still practicing on the front line- in the operating room. Best I have known. (Probably the best out there).

Dr De Risi was highly recommended to me 8 years ago when diagnosed RB cancer

Not only was Dr De Risi all that I was told ,but much more. He is warm, kind, very caring. and an expert in the field. After my RB lumpectomy which was done with such skill by Dr DeRisi it was hardly noticeable. Recently I needed surgery and biopsy of LB which thankfully was not cancer, but was treated like royalty by Dr DeRisi.

Wonderful Doctor

First met Dr. DeRisi 5 months ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. His wonderful and caring bed side manner was so reassuring. He performed a double mastectomy and worked alongside Dr. Mark Silberman, plastic surgeon, who did the reconstruction. Dr. DeRisi saved my life since breast cancer runs in my family - my mom & sister. He listens to what you the patient has to say and works together for the best results. I highly recommend him. He is a wonderful breast surgeon.
