Specialties

Dr. John M Skibber 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.

Awesome Doctor

Dr Skibber is the most careing, sincere, compasionate surgeon I have ever dealt with. He makes you feel safe about the procedure that you are about to go through even knowing all of the risks. I have never had a doctor take the time to explain things to me as well as Dr Skibber. He also has great follow through after surgery. Dr Skibber is the BEST
