Valentine's Day Symposium on "Pelvic Happiness for Pelvic Cancer Pateints - Function Preservation by Treatment Precision"

February 13th and 14th, 2015 | Venue: Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, in Lisbon

  1. 7.1.2015

    As we look to improved clinical outcomes for patients with pelvic tumours we must be aware of the importance and sensitivity of the pelvic organs and functions. Urinary, sexual and bowel functions can be very seriously impaired by both disease and therapy and physicians must therefore be mindful of patient priorities when considering the various treatment options.

    New advances in surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are increasingly able to offer more precise and less functionally threatening therapies, trying to merge optimal outcome with better quality of life.

    On February 13th and 14th at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, in Lisbon, a multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned experts will meet to discuss how best to preserve "pelvic happiness" in patients suffering from pelvic tumours.

    We look forward to seeing you at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown on February 13th and 14th!
