Risks of Oncological Surgery
Our surgeons strive to protect our patients from all hazards during surgery. However, there is always a risk when undergoing any form of oncological surgery. These risks include but are not limited to pain, infection, allergic reaction to anesthesia, loss of organ function, bleeding, blood clots, and complications during the recovery process. With any oncologic procedure, the potential exists for tumor recurrence. Prior to any procedure, your surgeon and members of your medical team will explain these risks to you in detail. In most cases, the risks associated with oncological surgery are far less than leaving your cancer untreated.
We encourage you to ask your surgeon any questions you may have before the surgery. It is our pleasure to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your health.
Recovering from Oncological Surgery
Following the surgery, you can expect to spend a few hours in the post-op area recovering as the anesthetic wears off. During this time, members of our medical team will monitor your recovery and ensure that there are no complications. Depending on the type and extent of your surgery, you can expect your recovery to take anywhere from a week to several months.
