Dr. George I Salti 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.

The diagnosis of any cancer is scary and very nerve racking to anyone. Dr. Salti is the best thing to happen to Edward Hospital. On our first meeting he was pleasant, calm and informed me of what was to take place with the whipple surgery. Most of all Dr. Salti did not rush us with any of our concerns and took his time with me and my family. His staff was great and courteous and kind. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Salti. His bedside manor was super and his concern for me was out of the ordinary. He is very much hands on and you felt like you were his only patient. It has been one year since the surgery and I am doing good. Thank you Dr. Salti for your kindness, skill, knowledge and your overall calmness and helping us through a most difficult time. You never want to hear the word cancer but if you do you are in great hands with Dr. Salti and you can feel very secure in his treatment and his kind heart!
I came to Dr. Salti from out of State and after several surgeons including those at major university center told me I had no hope. Well, that was three years ago and I continue to follwup with Dr. salti. He is affable and always available. His staff is superb. I am fortunate to have Dr. Salti as my surgeon.
