Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology comes under the field of surgery applied to oncology, which involves the surgical management of tumours, mainly cancerous tumours. The goals of the surgical oncologist includes the removal of cancerous cells and keeping an area of healthy tissue surrounding it, also known as a clear margin or clear excision in order to prevent the cancer recurring in that area. Sometimes it's difficult to remove the whole tumor, therefore, a debulking surgery can be done to remove as much tumour as possible and to relieve symptoms such as pain, airway obstruction and bleeding. Surgical oncologists are also called as general surgical oncologists, thoracic surgical oncologists, subspecialty of general surgerygynecologic oncologists, etc who are experienced  in treating  the cancer patients. The James Ewing Society is recognised today as the Society of Surgical Oncology which was started by the surgeons interested in initiating and promoting the field of oncology. Complex General Surgical Oncology was given by American Board of Surgery, specially ratified as specialty Board certification in the year 2011.
