About

Nevada Surgery and Cancer Care was founded in 2005 by Dr. Kowalski and Dr. Wishnev.  Dr. Wishnev, a board-certified colon and rectal surgeon, began practicing in Las Vegas in 1997 after training at The Cleveland Clinic and The Robert Wood Johnson .  After finishing her fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology, Dr. Kowalski came to Las Vegas in 1998.  She is board-certified in Gynecologic Oncology.  Dr. Ren Yu Zhang, a board-certified colorectal surgeon, joined Nevada Surgery and Cancer Care in 2010.  Tuan Khuu, PA-C joined our group in 2014 and works with all our physicians and patients.

Our practice brings together a group of board-certified sub-specialty surgeons including gynecologic oncology and colorectal surgery.  We care for patients with gynecologic cancers and complex gynecologic surgical problems.   Our colon and rectal surgeons specialize in the treatment of colorectal and anal cancers, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, fecal incontinence, and screening colonoscopies.

We share a common philosophy of comprehensive care for a broad range of surgical and cancer-related problems, delivered with a compassionate touch.

We are committed to offering minimally invasive, innovative approaches to care when they are appropriate to help our patients recover faster and return to health as quickly as possible.
