Surgical oncologists treat cancer using surgery, including removing the tumor and nearby tissue during a operation. This type of surgeon can also perform certain types of biopsies to help diagnose cancer.
We adopt a comprehensive approach to treating cancer. Surgeries are combined with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), etc., wherever possible for the most effective treatment.
