When surgery is performed to remove a tumor, radiation or chemotherapy may be given before or after (or both). Surgeons work closely with Radiation Oncologists and Medical Oncologists and are considered a crucial part of the cancer care team. Sometimes surgeons specialize in treating certain types of cancers like breast, gynecologic or bone cancers. A surgeon specializing in a certain cancer surgery may specialize in other non-cancer surgeries as well.
