Is there anyone out there that may know of a good Liver Sergeon....My father has Renal Cell Carcinoma..and had his kidney removed about 6 years ago..since then his cancer came back in a form of 3 small tumors in the kidney cavity....one of his tumors is about 2 inches big but is in his Liver.....my father's doctor says that surgery would depend on a liver surgeoun telling him what the percent is that they can take out that tumor in the liver....has anyone had a similar experience? can anyone recommend anyone in particular in the NJ/NY area? Any advice would be deeply appretiated...thanks so much!

My father has renal cell carcinoma stage 4 and the for the past year he has been going to Sloan-Kettering in NYC and Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. they are suppose to be the best and i beleive they are. you will get in very quickly and they are the friendliest and most upfront doctors and nurses you will meet. Good luck to you and your father.
