Robert G. Uzzo, MD, chair, Surgical Oncology, G. Willing "Wing" Pepper Chair in Cancer Research, senior vice president, Physician Services, president, Fox Chase Cancer Center Medical Group, Inc., professor of surgery, Temple University Health System, Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses the role of surgery in kidney cancer.

As long as there is a no effective systemic therapy for kidney cancer, surgery will still have an important role, says Uzzo.

Surgery is being refined in this disease, just as is it in many other tumor types, adds Uzzo. Organ-sparing surgery is also becoming increasingly emphasized.
