Operative Standards for Cancer Surgery Video Series

The Operative Standards for Cancer Surgery Video Series, a collaboration between the ACS Cancer Research Program and the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, is designed to help surgeons incorporate evidence-based techniques into their practice. A companion to the Operative Standards for Cancer Surgery manuals, which offer evidence-based recommendations for cancer operations, each video in the series will briefly demonstrate the proper technical conduct of one Critical Element as described in the manuals.
