Early detection and treatment is the key.
We confirm your diagnosis, and quickly. The surgeons at Wilmington Surgical Associates offer comprehensive biopsy capabilities backed by vast experience and unsurpassed accessibility, including same-day appointments and walk-ins. To confirm diagnosis and accurately stage a patient’s cancer, WSA surgeons will perform the most appropriate biopsy procedure for your unique needs within 24 to 48 hours, such as:
- Stereotactic biopsy
- Ultrasound-guided biopsy (mass or lymph node)
- Minimally invasive open biopsy (office or outpatient surgery)
Cooperative care and treatment.
For many people diagnosed with cancer, the treatment plan often includes surgery to remove tumors in combination with one or more other treatments, such as chemotherapy to destroy, control and remove tumors and other “precancerous” growths.
At Wilmington Surgical Associates, our leading-edge surgeons have vast experience working in concert with the other specialists on patients’ multidisciplinary cancer-care teams: oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and others.
