Surgeries Offered


Modified Radical Mastectomy

Modified Radical Mastectomy is the procedure done for treatment of breast cancer, in this whole breast along with pectoralis fascia and level I and II axillary lymph node removed. This procedure is mainly used for advanced breast cancer where breast preservation will not give effective cosmetic result. It can be combined with reconstruction technique either by a local flap or by silicone implants.

Breast Conservation Surgery

Breast conservation surgery includes removal of tumor within the breast with adequate margin and preserving the remain breast. This procedure is done in small breast tumors, where breast to tumor ratio is such that after removal of tumor, the shape of the breast will not be deformed. Breast conservation makes radiation to the whole breast mandatory to prevent recurrence in conserved breast.

Commando Surgery

Commando Surgery also known as compound oro-mandibular resection. It is done for advanced oral cavity tumors which includes removal of half of the jaw along with complete nodal dissection of neck. Reconstruction can be done with local musculo-cutaneous flap or can be done with free fibular bone flap.

Radical Neck Dissection

Cancer of oral cavity, throat and thyroid may spread in advanced stage to neck lymph node, complete excision of these nodes is termed as radical neck dissection. It has dual benefit gives complete nodal staging and is curative in metastatic involvement of node. Radical neck dissection may require removal of major veins, nerves and muscle of neck if involved by tumor.

Total Thyroidectomy

Total Thyroidectomy is done as a curative procedure for thyroid cancer. It may have to be combined with selective neck dissection for involved nodal compartment. The procedure caries risk of injury to recurrent laryngeal nerve (nerve for the function of voice) and also to parathyroid glands (that helps in maintaining calcium levels in body). Meticulous surgery and bloodless field prevent injury to these structures.

Total Laryngo-pharyngo-esophagectomy

Total Laryngo-pharyngo-esophagectomy procedure is done for advanced larynx and hypopharyngeal tumors which makes radical surgery necessary. Radiotherapy remains the treatment of choice for advanced larynx and hypopharyngeal tumors and hence total-laryngo-pharyngo Esophagectomy is done for recurrent tumors. The procedure later requires preparation of gastric tube to join at the base of the tongue for gastro-intestinal continuity.

Thoraco-laparoscopic Esophagectomy

It is done for cancer of esophagus (food pipe). This procedure entails key hole surgery of chest from where the esophageal tumor is removed and also laparoscopic stomach tube is made for joining it to the remaining esophagus. Thoracoscopy advantage is that you do not need to open the chest for extracting the tumor which reduces the post operative complication like pneumonia, paralytic ileus, considerably.

Laparoscopic Radical Gastrectomy

It is done for cancer of stomach, it could be either total or distal radical gastrectomy. This procedure requires complete lymph node clearance which enables adequate staging and also helps in improving survival by eradicating the nodal disease. A part of small intestine (jejunum) is joined to remaining stomach to maintain the gastro-intestinal continuity.

Whipple’s Surgery

It is done for tumors of head of pancreas, bile duct and duodenal tumors near ampulla. This procedure entails removal of part of pancreas, part of bile duct, part of stomach and whole of duodenum. There are three anastomosis in this procedure for drainage of pancreatic, biliary and stomach content into small bowel. As there are three major anastomosis, it makes this procedure highly morbid among all gastro-intestinal surgeries. I carries  2%-4% risk of patient death even in expert centers.

Laparoscopic Hemicolectomy

It is done for tumors of colon (large bowel). Depending upon the site of tumor in large bowel it could be right hemicolectomy for right side and left hemicolectomy for left sided tumor. Surgery remains the corner stone for these tumor and has shown excellent survival if complete removal of tumor along with adequate lymph node dissection is done.

Laparoscopic Anterior Resection

It is done for tumors of the rectum. Depending upon the distance of the lesion from the anal opening the procedure is done, for upper and middle rectal tumors Laparoscopic Anterior resection (AR) or low anterior resection is done. If tumor lies in lower rectal region where the sphincters for fecal continence cannot be preserved, Abdomino-perineal resection (APR) done. APR necessitates permanent colostomy.

Laparoscopic Radical Hysterectomy

It is done for cancer of endometrium (uterus) or of the cancer of cervix. This procedure entails removal of adequate para-uterine and para-cervical tissue with adequate cuff of vagina. This procedure usually combined with pelvic lymph node dissection for adequate staging and to determine post-operative treatment.

Laparoscopic Radical Nephrectomy

It is done for tumors of kidney. In this procedure either complete or partial removal of the kidney is done depending upon the size and site of the tumor. A complete nephron-ureterectomy with excision of bladder cuff is done for renal pelvis and ureteric tumors.

Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy

This procedure is done for advanced urinary bladder tumors. It entails complete removal of bladder along with prostate and pelvic lymph node dissection. Reconstruction of bladder can be achieved with the help of different intestinal pouches or urinary conduit can be made of ileal segment with permanent stoma for urinary diversion.

Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery

VATS is a minimally invasive technique performed for carcinoma of lung. It entails removal of lobe of lung or complete removal of lung (also known as pneumonectomy) by small incision. It has multiple advantages over conventional open surgery such as smaller incision, less painful, less chances of complication and early discharge from hospital.
