Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph

The advent of new technologies has revolutionized biomedical research. But clinical implications for improving health are hard. This article discusses how these technological explosion including laparoscopic and robotic surgery and next-generation DNA sequencing technology influences surgical oncology practice. Moreover, it is discussed why these technological advances without scientific innovative thinking will have modest efficacy in changing poor outcomes of patients with advanced solid cancers.
