At the Surgical Oncology Department of Sante Plus Hospital, we perform radical operations in the field of cancer surgery, and minimal invasive surgical procedures that have importance in cancer treatment. We adopt a multidisciplinary treatment approach to surgical treatment of cancer. To that end, we hold multidisciplinary patient evaluation meetings for cancer patients during which we discuss the treatments to be employed and determine patient-specific treatment plans.
