The Importance of Patient Education in General Surgery and Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology and general surgery aren’t just simple treatments in the field of precision medicine. These treatments often lead to massive lifestyle changes and a long recovery process and might also require ongoing management. Because of this, patients need compassionate care and require surgical oncologists to go that extra mile to make the treatment complication free and seamless.

Helping the patient understand their disease, every step of the surgery, and the recovery process are all essential in setting up the stage for the best possible outcomes and quick recoveries. Education plays a pivotal role in patient care, especially in areas such as oncology. Educating patients is a number one priority. They should know more about their diseases, the available treatments, producers, and follow-ups to receive the best outcomes.

Proper education doesn’t only make care more personalized and better overall; it also helps foster compliance and decrease stress and anxiety, but it also helps to build trust. We take that extra step to educate our patients about the physical expectations while also addressing the emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial elements of our collaboration.

Following surgical oncology treatments, cancer patients will often undergo immunotherapy, chemo, or radiation therapy. The last two are known to cause concerning side effects which can cause major discomfort and make the struggle even more difficult. We aim to give our patients guidance in these demanding times by explaining to them the nature of every possible side effect, helping them prepare for the road to recovery that’s often challenging. Still, with compassionate care and understanding, we can make this path more walkable and easier to manage.

Lauri D.

Dr. Rashid saved my life! He was compassionate and walked us through every step of my surgery and recovery. His nurse Khin was amazing and understanding.

  Amazing doctor! Dr. Rashid allowed me to be part of a new castle scan study that allowed us to find out if my melanoma tissue shows high or low risk for recurrence and how likely it is to be in my lymph nodes. The result of this test gave me peace of mind that I’m low risk and my anxiety has gone down tremendously!! thank you for that! When i did go to his office to speak with him, he sat with me for almost an hour explaining everything in detail and taking his time to make sure I understand everything. He is very kind and patient and I highly recommend him if you are researching to find a doctor!
