Welcome to Surgical Oncology at Crystal Run. Surgical Oncology is a branch of surgery which focuses on the surgical management of cancer.

He is skilled in General and Laparoscopic surgery with a particular focus on Breast Surgery. Dr. Karpoff is dedicated to quality improvement and participates in the American Society of Breast Surgeons’ The Mastery of Breast Surgery Program - a voluntary quality improvement initiative designed to help surgeons document their clinical performance of breast procedures, as well as their care of breast cancer patients and patients at risk for breast cancer.

At Crystal Run, cancer care is a multi-disciplinary team approach. You’ll receive coordinated care from oncologists, certified oncology nurses, a surgical oncologist and nutritionist. Plus, we make it easy to schedule lab work, diagnostic testing and even biopsies, often all in one place. Because we also know that when it comes to receiving treatment, comfort, convenience and peace-of-mind are key.
