Increase cancer knowledge, decrease cancer’s impact
The mission of the Cancer Research Program is to integrate with the other Âé¶¹´«Ã½Cancer Programs and lead research to improve the care of the person with cancer, in particular the surgical cancer patient.
Kimberly S. Corbin, MD; Diana Dickson-Witmer, MD, FACS; and Christina A. Minami, MD, members of the Cancer Research Program (CRP), discuss the omission of sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients 70 years and older with cT1N0 HR+ breast cancer. The purpose of this video is to provide clinicians with a short, concise review of the data behind this recommendation, as well as disease and patient considerations in omitting sentinel lymph node biopsy and radiation therapy in this population.
The Operative Standards for Cancer Surgery Video Series is designed to help surgeons incorporate evidence-based techniques into their practice.
