Dr. Eli Avisar 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 transferred from a local hospital to Jackson Memorial. I was given a less than 10% chance to live with Acute Necrotizing Pancreatitis. I was told my only chance was to get to a university hospital and Dr Avisar Graciously accepted me to his care. Even being transferred to his care my chances of living were slim according to him and I always appreciated his honesty. He never lied to me and always spent more time with me than I ever thought he should (at I let him know that)His care and dedication to me saved my life on more than one occasion. I owe him and his staff everything. I would gladly recommend him to anyone. His bedside manner is second to none. He often spent over an hour with me just to explain everything to me and cared for me as a whole person and not just my physical infirmaties. Even during office visits he wants to know how I'm living my life (school, girlfriends and so on)he cares about me as a person. He will never lie to you just to make you feel better and will always be honest with you about your chances.
