Prof Mike Jaklitsch - Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

Prof Jaklitsch talks with ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw about offering surgical care to geriatrics with cancer.

Prof Jaklitsch outlines what needs to be considered and risks there are when considering surgery at this age.

There are also lifestyle changes as well as 'strength and conditioning programmes' which can greatly help recovery.

He believes that honest discussion and communication with patients is key for a better outcome.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
