Robert, a past patient at HSN, knows what it means to have access to the highest level of quality care and how the generosity of others has made that possible.
“Thanks to the expertise of specialized surgeons and the collaboration between orthopedic and oncology areas, I had an innovative surgery called tumour embolization used to block the blood flow to my tumour, followed by a procedure to remove it and then reconstruction surgery using a prosthetic. Thanks to the incredible support from my dream team of doctors, I’m back to living my life and doing the things I never dreamed would be possible again.”
With your support, we will also continue to propel medical advancements through our innovative research and specialized equipment that is focused on earlier detection, prevention and more effective treatments and cures for people in our community and beyond.
