Cancer is the second commonest killer of people in Pakistan. Thus it represents a huge disease burden on our nation. Surgical Oncology Society Pakistan (SOS-PK) is the main national representative body of surgeons from Pakistan with interest in cancer surgery.
It is an affiliate society of ESSO (European Society of Surgical Oncology) and is also part of the Global Cancer Surgery Leadership Forum Initiative of SSO – Society of Surgical Oncology, USA.
SOS-PK, established in Lahore in 2008, has the following 3 aims
1. To foster the development of education and training in cancer surgery by facilitating communication among the surgeons whose prime interest lies in this field. SOSPK achieves this by arranging conferences and symposia throughout Pakistan.
2. To promote the highest quality of care of the patients with cancer, emphasising multi-disciplinary team approach and advocating establishment of comprehensive cancer facilities providing all treatment under one roof.
3.To work towards cancer prevention & early detection by providing optimal awareness for general public, health administrators and healthcare professionals.
All surgeons with interest in Cancer Surgery, who agree with above stated aims of society, are welcome to join Surgical Oncology Society Pakistan. For membership form please click here
