What is a surgical oncologist?
Surgical oncologists are surgeons who have additional intensive training in the surgical management of tumors. A surgical oncologist removes the tumor and nearby tissue during an operation to slow or halt the cancer's progress. These specially-trained surgeons may focus on a particular part of the body - or treat tumors throughout the anatomy.
