Specialties

Dr. Mark M Connolly 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.

Misdiagnosis

Connolly performed a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and upon entering the abdominal cavity encountered my liver covered with yellowish spots which he told his residents and my wife wa stage 4 metastatic cancer. Three days later when biopsy results were done, it was discovered that the spots were non-malignant hamartomas. Totally benign. What arrogance! After 38 years it's time to put down your scalpel, Mark.

Cannot Go Wrong!

He is the best. Not too often do you find a "hot shot" doctor who is also genuinely a nice person. You cannot go wrong with choosing him. Any length of time you wait to get in will be worth it. The first time I went to see him, I did wait a long time, but that was because he is in such demand. People were walking in with complex and urgent surgical needs that day. He is an excellent doctor.

I was under the care of Dr. Connolly twice within the span of five years for breast cancer. I am now a thirteen year survivor. All that I say to anyone who is reading this and seeking a world class physician that genuinely cares deeply about his patients for yourself or anyone you know who is suffering with cancer you really don't need look anti further. A more caring higher skilled physician than Dr. Connolly would be almost impossile to find. See for yourself.
