What is Oncologic Surgery?

Diagnosing and Treating Cancer in Animals

Oncologic surgery is routinely used in establishing a diagnosis, performing a biopsy, tumor excision, palliative indications, and debulking tumors. When used in conjunction with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, or immunotherapy, surgery can often make the treatment more effective. Overall, oncologic surgical intervention can improve your pet’s quality of life and comfort when used as definitive or palliative therapy.
