Compassionate Multidisciplinary Care
Lisa Rutstein, MD, a well-known and talented surgical oncologist, works with a highly coordinated multidisciplinary care team to provide exceptional care close to home. New techniques in surgical oncology—cancer-specific surgery—combined with your unique needs, desires and case specifics, provide excellent and compelling options for successfully treating your disease and restoring your quality of life.
Trevor was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2018 at the age of 41. The father of two young girls remembers that he and his wife were in total shock at the diagnosis because, other than fatigue, he had no symptoms that might indicate he had cancer.
After surgery and four rounds of chemotherapy, Trevor learned that the cancer had spread to his liver, which is what brought him to Dr. Lisa Rutstein. The couple consulted with her at the Topsham Care Center and were grateful that their number one choice for a surgical oncologist was less than an hour drive from home.
What stands out about the care he received is that Dr. Rutstein and her team members made him feel like he was their only patient. Not only did she take the time to answer all of his questions, but he felt she cared for him and his family as if they were part of her own.
The Topsham Care Center offers convenient access to more affordable quality healthcare – all in a welcoming environment. The state-of-the-art facility reflects Central Maine Healthcare’s commitment to putting the patient first, bringing the care they need closer to where they live and work.
