Surgical Oncology

Centers of Excellence

Surgery is the most important component in the treatment of solid-organ cancers. Without it, cure is not a realistic possibility. At the TULASI Hospital of Cancer Cure, our surgeons work to preserve as much of the patients’ organs as possible in order to give them a better quality of life.

New-age treatments for conservation

In the effort to preserve the patient’s organ(s) while eliminating the disease, the onco-surgeon works closely with the medical and radiation oncologists to ensure the optimal outcome in each case.

This is accomplished by adopting a conservative approach, using various pre-operative treatments such asinterventional radiology, radiofrequency ablation, chemotherapy and radiation. These treatments shrink the tumours and minimise the surgical field, allowing for keyhole surgery which is minimally invasive. This not only enables the surgeons to save the organ, but also reduces scarring.

In the early stages of several cancers, surgery alone may suffice to cure the patient of the disease. In more advanced stages, chemotherapy and/or radiation may be needed before or after surgery to achieve an optimal result.

The surgical team at MICC includes plastic surgeons and surgeons from other specialities, who help reconstruct organs and limbs.
