Registrar/ Trust Grade in Surgical Oncology – 12 months

This post is intended for surgical trainees who wish to obtain experience in and exposure to specialist surgical oncology, specifically surgery for soft tissue sarcoma and advanced melanoma. The successful applicant will work on the Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS) and malignant melanoma (MM) units at The Royal Marsden Hospital.

Approximately eight hundred new cases of STS are referred to the RMH every year and are treated by a multidisciplinary team. All new cases are reviewed at a weekly multidisciplinary meeting where management is discussed. This provides the Fellow with an unparalleled experience. Surgical management included soft tissue tumours of the limbs and limb girdle, intra- abdominal and trunk. About 5% of these patients will require reconstruction of skin and soft tissue. There will be opportunities for clinical research and the preparation of papers for presentation and publication.

Similarly there is a multidisciplinary team handling patients with malignant melanoma. There will be ample opportunities to learn techniques of lymph node dissection, isolated limb perfusion and laser vaporisation of in-transit metastatic melanoma.
