Explore surgical oncology through informative videos and expert insights. Learn about cancer surgeries, treatment strategies, and advancements in surgical oncological care.

Surgical Oncology is a specialized field dedicated to the surgical treatment of cancer. Surgical oncologists, experts in this discipline, play a pivotal role in the multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. They are responsible for the surgical removal of tumors and cancerous tissues, often collaborating closely with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to develop comprehensive treatment plans. Surgical oncology encompasses various cancer surgeries, including breast cancer surgeries, gastrointestinal cancer resections, and procedures for head and neck cancers.

Surgical oncologists focus not only on achieving optimal cancer removal but also on preserving essential structures and functions to enhance patients' quality of life. The field emphasizes the integration of advanced surgical techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery and robotic-assisted procedures, to minimize the impact on patients and facilitate faster recovery. Surgical oncology contributes significantly to the overall management of cancer, aiming to achieve complete cancer eradication while minimizing surgical morbidity.
