Crozer-Keystone Health System is pleased to announce that surgical oncologist Andrea Porpiglia, M.D. has joined the Crozer-Keystone Health Network and is accepting new patients.

Dr. Porpiglia is a surgical oncologist who offers comprehensive surgical and coordinated care to patients with advanced cancer, including colon/rectum, breast, GI tract, liver, pancreas, skin and more. A surgical oncologist specializes in the removal of a tumor or cancerous tissue and performs biopsies when initial testing finds suspicious results.

Dr. Porpiglia earned her medical degree from University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, Tenn. She completed her fellowship training in complex surgical oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center and is board-certified in general surgery. She also holds a master’s degree in Clinical Research from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and is a member of several professional medical societies—including the Society of Surgical Oncology and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Dr. Porpiglia believes that a team-based approach—which includes primary care and specialty physicians, the patient and their family—will produce the best patient outcomes and satisfaction. She works closely with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to formulate the best treatment plan, and will continue to monitor patients even after they are free of cancer for five years or longer.

Dr. Porpiglia sees patients at her offices at Crozer Medical Plaza at Brinton Lake in Glen Mills, and in the Medical Office Building at Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill. She will add a third office location in January 2016 when the health system opens its newest outpatient facility, Crozer-Keystone at Broomall. She performs surgeries at Crozer-Chester Medical Center and Delaware County Memorial Hospital.
