Pediatric Onco Surgery

Saving Children’s Lives from Cancer

Pediatric oncology surgery is a medical specialty that deals with the surgical treatment of cancers in children, from newborns to adolescents. These cancers can affect any part of the body, such as the brain, bone, liver, kidney, skin, blood, and more. Some of the common cancers in children are leukemia, lymphoma, neuroblastoma, Wilms tumor, osteosarcoma, and retinoblastoma. Pediatric oncology surgeons are doctors who have specialized training and skills in performing surgery on children with cancer and can provide life-saving and life-improving interventions.

Pediatric oncology surgery is a complex and challenging field that requires careful planning and coordination with other specialists, such as pediatric oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, nurses, anesthesiologists, and psychologists. The goals of pediatric oncology surgery are to remove as much of the cancer as possible, while preserving the normal function and appearance of the affected organ or tissue. Depending on the type and stage of the cancer, surgery may be combined with other treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, or stem cell transplantation.

Pediatric oncology surgery is an important and rewarding career that requires compassion, courage, and innovation. Pediatric oncology surgeons work in various settings, such as hospitals, academic centers, and private practices. They collaborate with other health professionals and researchers to provide comprehensive and multidisciplinary care for children and their families. Pediatric oncology surgeons also play a vital role in advancing the research and education in pediatric cancer surgery and improving the outcomes and quality of life for children with cancer.
