In organ preservation surgery, the surgeon removes the tumour tissues from an organ but keeps the organ intact in the body. The main motto behind this is to save the organ by only removing the cancerous tissues. This is particularly done in cases of breast cancer, tongue cancer, and prostate cancer. It provides the following benefits:
- It makes the surgery less complicated.
- Less complication leads to faster recovery.
- It causes less damage to the healthy tissues.
- The surgery preserves the quality of life among patients.
