More on impact ›
The Surgical Oncology section reports on the advances of surgical techniques and their impact on morbidity, mortality and quality of life of cancer patients subjected to surgical treatment. Classical techniques and as well as novel approaches, including minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery, are welcome in this specialty.
The Surgical Oncology section is dedicated to advancing our understanding of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies of surgical relevance that demonstrably impact cancer patient outcomes.
We are especially interested in the translational nature of Surgical Oncology, including: biomarkers; immunological mechanisms in cancer; risk scores; and efficacy of technologies such as virtual reality, simulation and Artificial Intelligence in patient management. Also of interest are studies which focus on laboratory research that can help stratify outcomes and intervention towards personalized medicine. Recognizing the value of research that cuts across clinical and basic sciences, we welcome studies that integrate psychological aspects with medical assessment and surgical intervention.
The section has a strong emphasis on clinical trials, sizable multicentre retrospective case series, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Case reports are generally not accepted but may be submitted in several sections in Frontiers in Surgery.
