Straight From The Patients

Surgical Oncology

       A surgical oncologist deals with all aspects of cancer from diagnosis to therapy, follow-up, palliative care, and screening. Practiced by some of the most devoted and perseverant medical professionals, surgical oncology is a strenuous and highly demanding profession that involves a multidisciplinary approach as well as an incredibly strong character. Surgical oncologists typically require at least 8 years of post doctoral training prior to establishing their practice.  Despite the devastating features of cancer, surgical oncologists continue to fight this terrible and multi-faceted illness employing state-of-the-art technology and outstanding medical abilities. Trained to fight many times an already lost battle, those who choose surgical oncology as a career are endowed with unique medical and personal traits.
