For cancer surgery, trust North Texas’ advanced, experienced surgeons
Cancer surgery is a big-tent medical service. To put it simply, cancer surgery is any surgery that is performed to treat, relieve or prevent cancer. Surgery was the first treatment for cancer, and it remains one of the most common and effective cancer treatments. Most people who are diagnosed as having cancer are likely to undergo some form of surgery as part of their comprehensive treatment plan.
Surgical oncology is surgery with several cancer-related goals.
Surgical oncology encompasses a variety of techniques, approaches and — very importantly — objectives. Here are of the goals of cancer surgery:
- To remove some or all of the cancerous tissue
- To diagnose cancer and determine its location, spread and effects
- To restore physical function and appearance affected by cancer or cancer treatment
- To relieve side effects of treatment
- To relieve pain or other symptoms of cancer – palliative care
