Published: Monday, May 25, 2015



Emad Kandil, MD, Chief of Endocrine Surgery at the Tulane University School of Medicine, discusses advances in surgical procedures.

A positive oncological outcome is the main goal when performing a surgical procedure on a patient with a cancer diagnosis, says Kandil. Surgeons aim to reduce chance for reoccurrence as much as possible and improve survival.

New technologies now offer minimally invasive techniques that can reduce scar tissue and recovering times for patients, while still providing positive oncological outcome.
