November 01, 1999
BUFFALO, NY-Over the past several years, the focus of breast cancer treatment has shifted from late detection and radical surgery to early detection, breast-conserving surgery, and multimodality treatment. This “paradigm shift” may also be applicable to colorectal cancer, Glenn D. Steele, Jr., MD, PhD, dean of the Biological Sciences Division, Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago, said at a surgical oncology symposium hosted by Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Dr. Steele was the recipient of the Roswell Park Centennial Award.
