Surgical oncologists are the doctors who remove tumors and nearby tissues through surgery or help diagnose cancer by performing biopsies. These doctors can perform various procedures depending on the need -- from open surgeries to minimally invasive ones. Some may also choose to specialize in certain cancers such as skin or gastrointestinal cancers, or even in specific age groups, like pediatrics. Whether they perform a needle biopsy to take a sample or perform surgery to remove all or parts of the cancerous tissue, they work with a team of experts to provide you with the best possible care available. U. S. National Surgical Oncologist Day is a day to celebrate the accomplishments of every lifesaving surgeon who specializes in abolishing cancer.
National Surgical Oncologist Day was founded in 2019 by Jenni Cherlin and the Lean On Me Breast Cancer Foundation to recognize the life-saving work and accomplishments of surgical oncologists everywhere. It's celebrated on Aug. 22 because it's the birthday of Dr. Dwight Carlton De Risi, who is a world-renowned surgical oncologist whose career spanned over 30 years.
