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.
While the primary role of every Doctor/Surgeon remains to treat those with ailments we also have a responsibility to teach. It is to this end that we wish to explore not only the scientific and clinical data in the field of Surgical Oncology but also to report the increasing advances in surgical techniques that Surgeons continue to update and evolve to provide their patients with the best care. Surgical innovation in the 21st century is moving at an incredible pace. The timely publication of such advances is essential to all practicing surgeons.
The Surgical Oncology Section of the Journal aims to publish impact of surgical techniques on, morbidity, mortality, duration of hospitalization as well as health economics. Innovative surgical techniques and their impact on patients’ quality of life are also of interest to this Section.
While papers on classical surgical techniques are welcome, we are especially interested, but not limited to: minimally invasive surgery, and robotic surgical techniques applied to all areas of Cancer but specifically Hepatopancreatobiliary, Oesophagogastric, Sarcoma and Transplantation. We also welcome basic science research involving surgical techniques.
