Having a connected and communicating cancer team plan and provide the most effective treatment strategy for each patient increases positive outcomes.
Surgical Oncology Treatment Options
The surgical oncology specialty focuses on the surgical management of all types of cancerous tumors, both malignant and benign. This includes the removal of tumors, which is done in a minimally invasive manner.
