Oncology and Surgery
Historically, surgery was the only treatment for cancer with pioneering surgeons pushing the boundaries of knowledge down through the millennia . Only in the last century have non surgical means provided an alternative way to surgery. Despite the advances in medical and radiation oncology, surgery is still the only modality with the potential to cure most solid cancers. The goals of the surgical oncologists are to remove the cancer affected tissue without harming the healthy tissue surrounding it, also known as a clear margin or clear excision. Sometimes it is not possible to remove the whole tumor, and a special surgery known as "debunking" is done to remove as much of the tumor as possible and to relieve indications such as airway obstruction, pain, or bleeding. As part of the multidisciplinary care team, oncology surgeon provides expert opinion about biopsy techniques, optimal image guidance, the likelihood of achieving clear margins, and what will be the role for surgical management of more advanced disease.
