Dr. Steven T Brower 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.

I've been seeing Dr. Brower for 15 years and he is excellent. He is a leader in his field and has unbelievable knowledge. His care for me and my family has been unparalleled by any other specialist and I wouldn't trust another doctor with my life. He's courteous, patient, helpful, understanding and entirely dedicated to enhancing my health, my life and my family.
When Brower told me he would do my liver resection and how he was head of the cancer unit at Anderson Cancer Instute 4700 Waters Ave Savannah Georgia located at the same adress as Memorial Hospital I believed him. after the surgery I found out Dr. James Garber removed the two sections of the liver this a liver resection not Brower this is called a BAIT AND SWITCH. Bait the patient with telling them they will have a doctor with over 30 years experience and then send in one with not even close to 30 years experience. when you are drugged in the operating room you are defenseless. Both these doctors are still operating brower last I heard at Continum Cancer Beth Isreal or one of their hospitals under them and Garber at Anderson Cancer Instute Memorial Hospital 4700 Waters Ave Savannah Georgia I have heard we now have doctors going back to school to get law degrees so that when we go into surgery we can take a lawyer who was a doctor into the operating room to watch our doctor and protect us legally while we are drugged in the operating room so we do not become victims of BAIT AND SWITCH as I was at the hands of Steven T. Brower and James Garber.
Dr. Brower is at the top of the list for the kind of cancer surgeon anyone would hope to have care for them. Nationally recognized as one of the best in the US per Castle Connolly, (the hardest publication for an MD to be referenced in.) Superior training, credentialing, and an excellent, caring bedside manner.He had the "whole package!" You and your family always feel informed and that you are in the hands of ONE OF THE BEST AROUND! I have heard he is leaving the Savannah area to return to a senior position at a large, academic medical center in NYC, and I am so sorry for this LOSS for Savannah. We did a lot of research before seeking his expertise, and the next closest doctor with his skill level, was at Emory in Atlanta! It is truly SAVANNAH'S LOSS that he is relocating out of the area. NO ONE CAME CLOSE TO HIM. Always extremely supportive and compasionate to me and my family as we dealt with this terrible disease of Cancer.
Stay away from this doctor he is very abusive in the form of not seeing patients for dsays after surgery, not telling patients the entire truth before surgry,denieing me medical attention, is this how you want to be treated? I said it befor and I will say it again if you treated a dog the way I was treated you would be arrested.As afriend of mine said when I told her he was going back to new york "now you can get a real doctor."No cancer patient deserves to be lied to and abused the way I was with him for a surgeon. Stay away from him.
