About Surgical Oncology at AMC
AMC’s Surgical Oncology Service specializes in the surgical treatment of malignant tumors and growths. Our surgical oncologist, Dr. Jonathan Ferrari, is the only veterinary surgical oncologist in New York City and is one of only a handful of veterinary surgical oncologists worldwide. With Dr. Ferrari on staff, AMC can offer dogs, cats, and other small animal pets comprehensive cancer care. The Surgical Oncology Service works collaboratively with the Surgery, Oncology, and Radiation Oncology Services at AMC to coordinate cancer treatment between surgical procedures, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.
As a single treatment, surgery cures more animals with cancer than any other treatment, offering new hope for pets with cancer.
