Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) President, Douglas S. Tyler, MD, MSHCT, FSSO, highlights ways SSO is working to ensure that members have access to valuable surgical oncology resources.
The SSO has produced the podcast, SurgOnc Today, featuring conversations with individuals who are experts within their respective fields and are members of the Society’s Disease Site Work Groups. SSO supports the need for treatment decisions to be made on a case-by-case basis. The surgeon’s knowledge and understanding of the biology of each cancer, alternative treatment options, and the institution’s policies at the time the patient will be scheduled for surgery all need to be taken into consideration.
SSO collaborated with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society for Radiation Oncology to develop, Management of Hereditary Breast Cancer: ASCO, ASTRO and SSO Guideline. The multidisciplinary, expert panel addressed 10 clinical practice questions in the guideline.
In addition, SSO’s Breast Disease Site Work Group Chair and Vice Chair published the following Editorial on the guideline. McGuire KP, Mamounas EP. Management of hereditary breast cancer: ASCO, ASTRO, and SSO Guideline. Ann Surg Oncol. 2020. https:doi.org/10.1245/s10434-020-08396-8.
Speaking of SurgOnc® is a podcast brought to you by the Annals of Surgical Oncology (ASO) and the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO). The series is hosted by ASO Deputy Editor Dr. Frederick L. (Rick) Greene, who expands upon ideas from articles published in the Annals of Surgical Oncology. Once a month, Dr. Greene interviews authors and leading experts in surgical oncology.
