CASA GRANDE, Ariz., Jan. 9, 2023 – Cancer, Blood & Surgery Specialists of Arizona (CBSA), a partner practice of the American Oncology Network, LLC (AON), announced the relocation of its surgery clinic to 580 North Camino Mercado, Suite 5 in Casa Grande, which will be open to patients on January 9.
The clinic is the sixth location for the practice. However, unlike its other centers in Casa Grande, Flagstaff, Gilbert and Phoenix, the new clinic exclusively provides surgical services to patients.
“Removing some or all of the tumor via surgical methods can help patients respond better to their additional treatments; it can be an important part of the care plan,” said Dr. Ramon Mourelo, Board-certified general surgeon at CBSA. “As physicians, it is our job — our duty — to create a space that supports these types of procedures so that we can operate safely. Additionally, it is my hope that the dedicated space will help patients be more confident that they are in good hands when they choose us for their oncology care.”
“We operate with a patient-first mindset,” said AON Chief Executive Officer Todd Schonherz. “When we have the opportunity to improve our clinics to benefit our patients, we don’t hesitate. The new clinic gives Dr. Mourelo and his team the space to deliver care in an environment designed for cancer surgeries.”
Dr. Mourelo is the primary general surgeon at the new clinic and is supported by surgical physician assistant Jordan Creed, MMS, PA-C. He brings over 15 years of surgical experience, has a vast knowledge of oncology surgical procedures and has performed over 2,000 robotic-assisted surgeries.
