Dr. Steven Nagel 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.

Dr. Nagel is a skilled surgeon, with a listening ear and a nurturing demeanor. I recently had a surgical procedure by Dr. Nagel on an awkward position on my body due to a previous mastectomy. He took time before the procedure to ensure that I was in the most comfortable position before proceeding (propping me up with pillows; giving me a warm blanket); he gently talked me through the procedure, and the quick healing and minimal discomfort through the procedure and healing affirmed I had been treated by a skilled, competent surgeon. Also, his office is run efficiently, and his nurse is readily available (I emailed her, and she got right back to me; I called her and she was immediately available) This is a dynamic duo for women who are looking for a positive long term relationship with a great medical care team.
