About Surgical Oncology at AMC

AMC’s surgical oncologist, Dr. Katie Kennedy, specializes in the surgical treatment of malignant tumors and growths. She is the only veterinary surgical oncologist in New York City and is one of only a handful of veterinary surgical oncologists worldwide. With Dr. Kennedy on staff, AMC can offer dogs, cats, and other small animal pets comprehensive cancer care. Dr. Kennedy 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.
