Surgical Oncology Care | MedStar Health
Al-Refaie in Surgery

If you or a loved one requires surgery for cancer, you want the best doctors and treatment available. At MedStar Health and Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, we provide the expertise, compassion, and advanced treatment options you need for a successful outcome.

For the highest standard of care, consult a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist. This is a surgeon with additional years of training in treating people with cancer.

Our surgical oncologists work with a multidisciplinary team of expert specialists. Together, we develop a treatment plan that will be most effective for you. We base our recommendations on the latest research and use state-of-the-art surgical procedures. We also offer you access to the most current cancer clinical trials.

Plus, our team specializes in providing second opinions, if you receive a diagnosis elsewhere.

Compassionate care

Importantly, we believe in the MedStar Health mission of cura personalis, which means caring for the entire person. We understand that cancer treatment is a major life challenge. No matter how long or difficult your path to recovery may be, we offer you and your family compassion, caring, and respect every step of the way.
