Orthopaedic Oncology and Sarcoma Team

Clinical Trials

The research team is participating in a multi-center American College of Surgery Oncology Group (ACOSOG) trial "A Phase III Randomized Trial Comparing Laparoscopic-assisted Resection Versus Open Resection for Rectal Cancer." The study tests the hypothesis that laparoscopic-assisted resection for rectal cancer is not inferior to open rectal resection, based on a composite primary endpoint of oncologic factors that are indicative of a safe and feasible operation under the auspices of the National Cancer Institute.
