Clinical Innovations in Surgical and Interventional Oncology
Over two-thirds of cancer patients receive surgery as a component of their first course of cancer treatment; as a result, surgery is a critical component of any comprehensive cancer program. While there have been few game-changing technologies developed in recent years, evidence demonstrating that higher volumes lead to improved outcomes grows, underscoring the importance of providing patients access to specialized, high-volume surgeons and hospitals.
In contrast, far fewer cancer patients receive interventional oncology procedures. However, interventional oncology procedures can provide both palliative and curative treatment to a growing number of patients. In addition, interventional oncology has the potential to improve patient outcomes, increase satisfaction, differentiate the cancer program, and lower costs.
