Three societies involved in cancer treatment quality, accessibility and innovation – the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), the US Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO), and the Brazilian Society of Surgical Oncology (SBCO/BSSO) – have developed a short animated video to explain the positive impact of specialised surgery in the fight against cancer.
In 2015 there were more than 15 million people diagnosed with cancer globally, and 80% of them underwent a surgical operation during their life. These procedures are highly specialised, and need to be performed in a multidisciplinary environment by surgical specialists in cancer care. The safety and quality of cancer surgery are thus essential.
SERBIAN SOCIETY OF SURGICAL ONCOLOGY was established in 2003 with the aim to promote and implement the science and practice of surgery in solid malignant tumors. Since 2012, SSSO is a member of the World Federation of Societies of Surgical Oncology (WFSOS), as well as a member of the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO). The special fields of work and interest of SSSO are:
IORS and SSSO members are already educating surgeons from Serbia with the plan to became a educational centar for surgical oncology for the entire Balkan region.
