Many factors contributes to this improvement; earlier diagnosis, better pre-operative staging, neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy, better surgical method and approach, introduction of pre- and post-operative multidisciplinary team conferences and adjuvant chemotherapy. Currently, new modalities are developing; robotics and organ preserving through wait-and-watch will give colorectal surgeons even more treatment options. This article highlights important aspects of colorectal cancer management now and in the future.
