What is surgical oncology?
Surgical oncology treats cancer using various methods of surgery to remove the cancer tissue and maintain and/or preserve the tissues left behind. Surgical oncologists work in tandem with physicians from many other specialties to design comprehensive, personalized care for each patient. All of the surgical oncologists at Wake Forest have completed additional subspecialty cancer training after surgical residency. This is unique in the area.
