Specialties

Dr. Joel C Box 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.

My wife had to see Dr Box on an emergency situation. He was very polite, knowledgeable and helped us to understand our options for her surgery. His staff at the office was great also, polite and genuinely caring. During her stay at the wonderful Gordon County Hospital the hospital staff were very confident and trusting of Dr Box with his experience and capabilities.

Diagnosed a rare tumor and took great care in running all the necessary tests. Recognised the need for a Surgeon with great expertise in this type of tumor and was diligent in finding the best available. Showed great concern for the patient and was very comforting to her during this process. This is what makes a Doctor great. Would not hesitate to see Dr. Box if the need should arise. Thank you Dr. Box for taking such good care of a friend.
