Modern surgical strategies in pediatric oncology

Shilpa Sharma; Devendra Gupta;

In review showed modern surgical strategies in selected areas of pediatric oncology. The newer energy sources have contributed to less blood and thus fewer complications following major resections. Robotic, endoscopy and stereotactic surgery have been the major advances in the treatment of pediatric tumours. There is more dependence on the use of chemotherapy, newer protocols with less toxic drugs and for shorter duration.
