Surgical oncology is specialty focused on the surgical management and extraction of tumors, especially cancerous tumors. Inspira’s skilled surgeons are expertly trained in the latest surgical techniques, performing minimally invasive surgeries whenever possible to reduce damage to surrounding organs and tissues.

Our Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery is equipped with the da Vinci® Surgical System, a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgical robot at Inspira’s Medical Centers in Vineland and Mullica Hill. This cutting-edge surgical technology allows our cancer surgeons to target tumors with incredible accuracy, remove them with greater precision and speed up recovery times for patients.

Inspira’s surgical oncologists perform an array of procedures and are equipped to treat:
  • Breast cancer: We offer minimally invasive biopsy procedures for diagnosing breast cancer. Surgical treatment for breast cancer at Inspira uses a leading-edge technology for locating tumors with pinpoint accuracy to spare health breast tissue. And, surgical options include advanced reconstructive surgery.
  • Gynecologic cancers: We provide surgical treatment options for women with cancer and pre-cancerous diseases of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, vulva and vagina.
  • Lung cancer: Our cancer team provides several treatment options including minimally invasive and video-assisted thoracotomy, mediastinoscopy and lung resection.
  • Prostate cancer: If surgical removal of the prostate gland is necessary, we offer minimally invasive da Vinci® prostatectomy—the new standard for the surgical treatment of prostate cancer. We also offer minimally invasive cryotherapy for prostate cancer, which freezes prostate tissue and causes cancer cells to die.
  • Colorectal cancer: we offer minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques for colorectal cancer. Robotic surgery allows surgeons to perform complex colorectal cancer operations with improved visualization and smaller incisions. Inspira has implemented an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program, shown to improve recovery while reducing opioid requirements, length of stay and readmission rates after colorectal surgery.

If you’d like more information about your or a loved one’s cancer care, or to receive a second opinion about a diagnosis, call 1-800-INSPIRA.

Why Choose Inspira?

Advanced Technology Meets Compassionate Support

We combine cutting-edge medical technology with a human touch, allowing us to provide expert care. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained oncology physicians are well-versed in the latest cancer treatments and are equipped with advanced technologies that can increase your chances for a successful recovery. We also understand that navigating the ups and downs of life with cancer can be overwhelming, which is why we provide a built-in support system of social workers, counselors, navigators, registered dieticians and behavioral health specialists so you and your family don’t have to walk the path to recovery alone.

A Comprehensive Approach to Cancer Care

Inspira’s oncology physicians take a multi-faceted approach to detecting, diagnosing and treating cancer by looking at your condition from a holistic perspective. Whether you’re just beginning treatment or are a cancer-free survivor, we take everything—genetics, lifestyle habits and other risk factors—into account when designing your care plan. By treating the whole person rather than just the disease itself, we’re able to offer a more targeted, personalized experience.

Access to Clinical Trials

Inspira participates in clinical trials to explore new ways to prevent, detect, or treat cancer. Clinical trials can also focus on other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with cancer. Participants help others and may also benefit from receiving the newest treatment along with additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
