Specialties

Dr. Richard B Arenas has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • 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.

Top-Notch Physician/Gentleman

I saw Dr. Arenas for a second opinion regarding a pathology report I received from a surgeon at another major hospital. He was very knowledge and personable; he takes his time to answer all questions and makes sure you understand his reasoning. When it come to surgery normally I don't care if the doctor has the personality of a clam, provided he/she has outstanding technical skills. However, not to worry, with Dr. Arenas you'll receive both, top-notch medical skill, and a warm friendly personality! He make you feel that he really care about you. I very highly recommend Dr. Arenas.
