This department is our pillar of strength. Presently we have five onco surgeons with us. All surgeons are experienced in the different premier institutes of the county. They are masters in their own field. Our team consists of one Head and neck onco surgeon, one GI and hepato-biliary and pancreatic onco surgeon, one orthopedic onco surgeon, and two urogynecological onco surgeons. In the last few years, we perform more than 500 major cancer surgeries with success.
Surgical oncology is basically a cancer care field that focuses on using surgery to diagnose, stage, and treat cancer. Surgical oncologists may also perform palliative surgeries to help control pain, increase a patient’s comfort level and manage cancer-related symptoms and side effects.
Whether a patient has to undergo surgery depends on factors such as the type, size, location, grade, and stage of the tumor, as well as issues related to the patient’s age, physical fitness, and other medical conditions.
Many patients have cancer surgery combined with other treatments also, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and others. Depending on the type of cancer, the size of the tumor, and its location, surgery may be performed using minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy or robotic surgery. Other conditions may require open surgeries, which are more invasive and have larger incisions. A surgical oncologist may work with other doctors and clinicians to help reduce pain and other side effects and speed recovery from surgery.
