About this Research Topic
We are pleased to introduce the Section Chief Editor's Pick, Quarter 1, 2021. This collection showcases carefully selected articles published in the section over the previous quarter.
The work exhibited here spotlights the high-quality and diverse research carried out globally, and brings attention to recent areas of interest and advances within the field. The collection not only supports the work of the authors who have contributed their outstanding research to the journal, but also recognises the hard work of our Editorial Board of international researchers who contribute to the peer-review of such articles.
The Surgical Oncology section of Frontiers in Oncology and Frontiers in Surgery reports on the advances of surgical techniques and their impact on morbidity, mortality and quality of life of cancer patients subjected to surgical treatment. The translational nature of surgical oncology, combined with laboratory research that can help stratify outcomes and interventions towards personalized medicine are of growing interest, and relevance to the field. Classical techniques and as well as novel approaches, including minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery, among others are of interest to the section.
We present here five publications published during the first quarter of 2021, carefully selected by the Specialty Chief Editors, Aali Jan Sheen (University of Manchester, UK) and Francesco Giovinazzo (UNICATT, IT).
With a broad interest in topics going beyond the operating threatre, these manuscripts showcase the diversity in content, authorship, and article type that the section encompasses.
Keywords: surgical oncology, multidisciplinary, translational oncology, robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, quality of life, patient outcomes
