Dr. Keith Delman 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.

Having a Melanoma on my upper chest area I was referred to Dr Delman to do the surgical removal of the Melanoma, surrounding tissue and any lymph nodes that might be affected. Dr Delman and his staff are professional but down to earth which makes them understanding and compassionate about what you are going through.He spoke in terms that you were able to understand about the surgical procedure and what to expect afterward. He doesn't rely on just what he sees and what his trained eyes tell him - but waits for clinical proof before telling you (no phone calls) the progression etc of the Melanoma so if the test come back 'Good' he wants to share in your happiness and if not he wants to be there to help in that area also.In a nutshell - Extremely knowledgeable and at the cutting edge the best and newest ways to go about the procedure, You - the patient and getting you cured is his top concern, Caring!!
