Returning to work following glioma surgery

Takeaway

  • Most patients with gliomas were able to return to work following surgical and adjuvant treatment.

Why this matters

    With improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of gliomas, survival is no longer the sole outcome of importance and patient-centered outcomes are of increasing interest. Pursuing a professional career is a major source of self-satisfaction and fulfillment, as well as being important to economic stability. Thus, the impact of brain tumor surgery and adjuvant treatment on patients’ occupational status is an important factor to be assessed.
