Reconstruction Following Tumour Resection
With the therapeutic options of plastic reconstructive surgery, the postoperative consequences of resection of various tumour diseases can be treated. These include tumours of the breast in women, such as breast cancer, tumours of the extremities (soft tissue sarcomas), and all types of tumours affecting the skin, soft tissue, and bones.
After safe oncological tumour removal, state-of-the-art plastic surgery techniques can be used to carry out these types of reconstructive procedures. This is especially important in modern interdisciplinary treatment concepts, because stable soft tissue can have a positive effect on the radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatment. With the removal of a tumour from the face, such as basal cell carcinomas, function and aesthetic considerations are incorporated into the overall tumour removal treatment concept.
