State-of-the-Art Surgical Services
Vincent Reid, MD
Director of Surgical Oncology
Medical Director, Hall-Perrine Cancer Center
Our vision is to provide world-class cancer care with the best and brightest minds, which includes specialists dedicated specifically to fighting cancer.
Hall-Perrine Cancer Center's surgical treatment removes tumors or parts of tumors in order to control the disease or cure the patient, where possible. This approach can be used as a therapy or comfort measure, as well, to help ease the patient's symptoms and improve their quality of life.
- MarginProbe® technology is used during early-stage breast lumpectomy surgeries and allows surgeons to detect whether there is any remaining cancer surrounding a removed lump. The MarginProbe System delivers clarity in real-time, reducing doubt and the likelihood of a second surgery. Hall-Perrine Cancer Center is the first hospital in Iowa to use MarginProbe.
- da Vinci robotic surgical system enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures, including prostatectomies and hysterectomies, through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
- Sophisticated surgery suites include voice-activation technology and the latest patient monitoring functions.
By giving doctors the best tools, we help give patients the best chance to heal and rehabilitate.
Our surgical suites are located on the second floor of Mercy Medical Center. Park at the south entrance of level two of the 8th Street parking ramp. Learn more about the Mercy Surgery Center or surgery tests and procedures.
