Specialties

Dr. Miguel A Rodriguez-Bigas 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.

Impress

I was impress and the consultation went well. He explained everything in detail on the 3 options I have in treating this polyp. Eye contact tells a lot about Dr. Rodriguez, he doesn't sugar coat anything and I like that. I love his sense of humor, which made me feel comfortable during the visit. Husband & I were please with this first visit.

Dr. Rodrigues is an angel and has an angel with him...

We feel Dr.Rodriguez is the BEST !!! Our Mom's cancer was huge, and her surgery was a successful challenge - and that was a year ago. She will be 86 this September. Dr.Rodriguez and his staff are awesome. Her surgery consisted of scraping abdominal wall, taken 18 inches of colon, part of iliem, etc... and he plumbed her back together perfectly -- Yes, I would say he is the BEST of the BEST.....
