For a surgical oncologist, National Doctors' Day is an important occasion to recognize the contributions of these doctors to the treatment of cancer and the well-being of their patients. Surgical oncologists are highly skilled and specialized doctors who focus on the surgical management of cancer. They are experts in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various types of cancer and play a vital role in the multidisciplinary care of cancer patients. On National Doctors' Day, patients, colleagues, and the general public can acknowledge the dedication, sacrifice, and compassionate service that surgical oncologists provide to individuals and families living with cancer. It is an opportunity to thank these doctors for their expertise, their commitment to advancing cancer treatment and care, and their willingness to work tirelessly to help their patients overcome cancer. For surgical oncologists, National Doctors' Day is also a time to reflect on their role in the healthcare system and to renew their commitment to their patients, colleagues, and profession.
