The SPRinT team
comprises of highly trained surgical oncologists specializing in the management
of sarcomas, peritoneal disease, gastrointestinal and advanced intra-abdominal
malignancies, and skin cancers. The management of these tumours
requires an individualized and holistic approach for each patient. As such, the
SPRinT team works closely with specialists
from various other sub-specialties to achieve the best outcome for each of our patients.
The SPRinT team are a big
part of the weekly multidisciplinary tumour boards meetings, where surgeons,
medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine
physicians and allied health staff discuss complex cancer cases in order to
reach comprehensive treatment decisions. Our surgical oncologists also
push the boundaries for cancer care via collaborative research,
state-of-the-art clinical trials and translational laboratory research. On the education front, the department
invests heavily in training the next generation of doctors, surgical trainees
and aspiring surgical oncologists in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.
