- 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.

She was so informative from the first visit. She is full of knowledge and will answer any question or concern you have. She spends time with you to make you feel comfortable. The day of surgery, she came into the room with my whole family and answered every question they had. And she didn't act like she was in a hurry. I am so glad she was recommended to me.
Dr. McWhite became my doctor and surgeon when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was kind, empathetic, and very thorough in explaining my cancer, treatment options, and prognosis. The cancer was surgically removed with such skill other physicians who have examined me have commented about that my surgeon did an excellent job minimizing the scar. The follow up after surgery was equally excellent and I always felt Dr. McWhite genuinely cared about me as well as my health. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She takes the time needed to answer your questions and help you understand your situation even allowing you to bring someone with you to ask questions you hadn't considered. I am well pleased and will return to her care if the cancer ever comes back.
