In this episode of our ‘Not Just NE Cancer Takeover Series,’ we welcome Mr Samuel Ford, a consultant surgeon specialising in NET surgery, general and upper gastrointestinal surgery, and sarcoma surgery. Additionally, he serves as the Research Committee Chair of the UK & Ireland Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (UKINETS).
Join us for an insightful conversation with Mr. Ford as we delve into the world of surgical research in neuroendocrine cancer. Discover what surgical research entails, how it’s conducted, and its vital importance in advancing our understanding of this rare cancer. We explore the process of collecting and utilising data and its potential to reshape clinical practices.
We also dive into the patient’s perspective, shedding light on their involvement in surgical trials within the neuroendocrine cancer community. Learn what it means for patients to be part of these trials and the impact it has on their pathway.
