ABSTRACT

As the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) continues to rise, so does our understanding of this disease and the number of available treatment options and strategies. Although surgical intervention often continues to play a central role, it must be placed in the proper context of what has rapidly become a multimodality, multidisciplinary disease. Understanding the nuances of managing HCC and its associations and treatment options are essential for making appropriate surgical decisions.
