Does the passive voice work in this sentence?
Each time I re-write this sentence the phrase "is removed" pops up. Any better ways of re-writing it come to mind???
For each surgery, there is a need to make sure that all the cancer is removed prior to beginning radiation or chemotherapy treatments.
Passive voice is not grammatically incorrect. The grammar checker points it out because many instructions require papers to be written on the active voice. (It is more interesting to read active voice.) to make the sentence active, the subject has to do the action. The doctor has to remove the cancer.
