Surgery plays a pivotal role in the management of most solid cancers. While surgery alone is adequate for early cancers, most advanced tumors require multimodal treatment. The department of Surgical Oncology has dedicated surgical specialists for the management of cancers of the head and neck, breast, thorax, gastro-intestinal tract, female reproductive system, bone and soft tissue, and genitor-urinary tract. These teams of specialists are complemented by a reconstructive surgeon (for complex reconstruction including micro-vascular free flaps after ablative surgery for oral and other cancers), radiologists for accurate imaging with the latest machines, onco-pathologists for tissue diagnosis and staging, intensivists, and other medical and rehabilitation specialists of the hospital.
