Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is a type of oncology that treats cancer by way of surgery. Surgical oncologists treat, manage and prevent various types of cancers, by removing tumors, lymph nodes and cancerous cells to prevent the potential spread of cancer. Surgical Oncologists work in conjunction with other specialists such as oncologists, radiologist and pathologists to decide the best care for the patient.
