From their website:
Oncological Surgery is an area of expertise of general surgery. The oncological surgeon is the professional qualified to perform diagnostic, treatment and palliative surgical procedures (symptom relief) in patients with suspected or presence of tumors. The Oncological Surgeon is trained to understand the best moment and the best way to manage cancer patients. At the Real Instituto de Cirurgia Oncológica we have a team made up of professionals with extensive experience in Oncological Surgery. Within Oncological Surgery, we have personalized service groups in which each professional meets and focuses their efforts to offer the most appropriate treatments. For example, we have surgeons who work in the following areas:
- Oncologic surgery of skin and soft tissue tumors
- Oncological Surgery of the Digestive System
- Liver, Pancreas and Biliary Oncologic Surgery
- Gynecological Oncology Surgery (Cancer of the ovary, uterus and cervix)
The demand for multidisciplinary care in oncology should always be sought.
The care provided by the group of surgeons within the Real Instituto de Cirurgia Oncológica will always occur individually.
The Conduct of each case will be properly discussed within multidisciplinary meetings which take place weekly. In these meetings, the patient will receive the opinion of several professionals (clinical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, among others), for the best treatment of different neoplasms.
