Surgical oncology is a cancer care field that focuses on using surgery to diagnose, stage and treat cancer. When a patient is faced with the diagnosis of cancer, the one and only question that each and everyone of us will have is “can I be cured?” The answer to this depends on the type of cancer and the role of surgery is to consider whether a patient is a candidate for surgery but there are several factors to consider. Nonetheless, though surgery is still the main cancer treatment option today for most cancers, but here at KYM Surgery, we provide a mix of treatment options to bring about the best possible outcome.

A surgical oncologist may be one of the first doctors you see if your general practitioner suspects that you have cancer. Surgical oncologists often perform biopsies, removing a small section of tissue so it can be checked for cancer cells. If cancer cells are present, then you might see the surgical oncologist again — this time to have the tumor and surrounding tissues removed. The surgeon will help you prepare for and also recover from any surgical procedures you have during cancer treatment.
