Dr Alessandro Testori - Istituto Europeo di Oncologia, Milan, Italy

Dr Testori speaks with ecancertv at WCCS 2016 about the role of surgery in melanoma treatment.

He describes techniques, such as limb perfusion, which can reduce the size and threat of tumours to a stage in which the tumour can be fully resected, with less severe impact on patient quality of life.

Dr Testori also details how the treatment of in-transit metastases poses a challenge of local targets versus systemic therapy, and how novel drugs are moving treatment of stage IV disease away from a purely surgical domain.
