Focus on Cancer Surgery

With more than 4,000 procedures performed each year in our community, surgery is key in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Our surgical teams work closely with our oncology and diagnostic teams to ensure the safe and timely delivery of cancer surgery at seven (7) of our community hospitals in the Central East Regional Cancer Program.

For more common cancers, we provide access to the same high quality surgical services here in your own community. Other rare cancers may require specialized treatment at a larger downtown centre. Our oncology and surgical teams are always working with cancer experts to bring more and more services close to home.

Cancer surgery is offered at The Scarborough Hospital, Rouge Valley Health System, Lakeridge Health, Ross Memorial Hospital, Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Northumberland Hills Hospital and Campbellford Memorial Hospital.
