Dr Gaetano Rocco - National Cancer Institute, Naples, Italy

Dr Gaetano Rocco talks about surgical removal of cancerous lung nodules from metastatic cancer patients. This process can be carried out using video assisted robotics or with an open thoracotomy but both techniques are tuned to ensure that any resection is as conservative and minimally invasive as possible. Dr Rocco discusses how patients are selected for each respective technique, explains how successful this procedure can be for the treatment of different cancer metastases and talks about the measures that must be taken to avoid recurrences.
