Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Surgery can be considered the oldest oncological discipline, dating back thousands of years, and still represents the standard of care in different oncological diseases. Prior to the advent of anesthesia and antisepsis in the nineteenth century, only the brave, desperate, or ill-advised patient underwent surgery because cure rates were low, and morbidity and mortality high. However, since then, cancer surgery has flourished, driven by relentless technical innovation and research. Historically, the main target of the oncological surgeons was that increasingly radical surgery would enhance cure rates. In the past 50 years, we have assisted a paradigm shift, with the realization that multimodal therapy, technological advances, and minimally invasive techniques can reduce the need for, or the detrimental effects of, radical surgery. Preservation of form, function, and quality of life, without compromising survival, is the new cornerstone of the treatment. The scope of this Topical Collection is to provide an overview of recent advances in the field of cancer surgery. Therefore, researchers in the field of oncological surgery are encouraged to submit an original article (no animal research) or review to this Special Issue (case reports and short reviews are not accepted).
