Laparoscopic cancer Surgery - Painess treatment option for cancer!
Laparoscopic cancer surgery is advanced technique of cancer surgery assisted by one of the best surgical oncologist in India
Dr. Archit Pandit. It is more efficient type of treatment than traditional open cancer surgery. Minimal access cancer surgeries (MACS) like laparoscopy, does not just offer an effective and safe treatment option for the patients, but the scars produced are aesthetically better than that of conventional open surgeries, helping the patient live an almost scar-free life post-surgery, as this procedure leaves no scars.
HIPEC surgery, also known as heated or hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, is the process of heating chemotherapy drugs and delivering them into the abdominal cavity. This treatment is often combined with cytoreductive surgery and is an effective approach for peritoneal mesothelioma.
During the HIPEC procedure, the surgeon will continuously circulate a heated sterile solution–containing a chemotherapeutic agent–throughout the peritoneal cavity, for a maximum of two hours. The HIPEC procedure is designed to attempt to kill any remaining cancer cells.
The procedure also improves drug absorption and effect with minimal exposure to the rest of the body. In this way, the normal side effects of chemotherapy can be avoided.
Minimum Trauma - Maximum Gains
Dr. Archit Pandit is one of the pioneers of minimal access cancer surgery. He is amongst the first to start Laparoscopic cancer surgery in Delhi. Soon after his surgical oncology training at A.I.I.M.S he underwent rigorous training in the field of Minimal access cancer surgery not just from with in the country but abroad as well.
He underwent Minimally invasive Thoracic surgery training from Korea and Laparoscopic cancer surgery for Stomach and Esophagus cancers from Japan. Laparoscopic and Robotic cancer surgery is his passion and at MAX institute of cancer Care , Shalimar Bagh , Delhi he has already performed more than 1000 Laparoscopic cancer Surgeries.
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a type of thoracic surgery performed using a small video camera that is introduced into the patient's chest via small incisions. The surgeon is able to view the instruments that are being used along with the anatomy on which the surgeon is operating. The camera and instruments are inserted through separate holes in the chest wall also known as "ports".
These small ports are advantageous because the chance for infection and wound dehiscence are drastically reduced. This allows for a faster recovery by the patient and a greater chance for the wound to heal.
While laparoscopic approaches are used for many abdominal procedures and allow for faster recovery of bowel function, better immunologic response and overall accelerated recovery for the patient, the use of laparoscopy for cancer surgery is still a matter of debate. For patients with cancer, questions remain about the immunologic implications of laparoscopic surgery, the adequacy and standardization of laparoscopic techniques, the risk for disease recurrence, and the impact on survival. The safety and efficacy of laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer has certainly been established, but the same rigorous approach to other cancers has yet to be reported. In this article we review the current data and state of the art for laparoscopic approaches in abdominal cancer surgery.
Robotic Cancer Surgery
A Robotic Surgery doesn't mean that a robot is performing the operation.Instead it, refres to when surgeons direct the surgery using Robotic tools.
Robotic Surgery can be done in following Cancer by:1. Head & Neck Cancers
2. Esophageal Cancers
3. Stomoch Cancers
4. Colon and Rectal Cancers
5. Hepato-pancreato-biliary Cancers
6. Gynaecological Cancers
7. Uterine Cancers etc
Can be treated by Robotic Cancer Surgery
Both laparoscopy and robotic are minimal invasive surgery. Both the surgery is the most modern surgical process for cancer surgery. In laparoscopy surgery, the surgeon performs the surgery by using rigid laparoscopy instrument which has an endoscopic camera which shows the images of the internal organs. The surgeons hand functions in the opposite direction of the instrument. In case of the Da Vinci” robotic cancer surgery, the surgeon sits in front of the console which helps to view the high definition images of the target organ. The robot’s arms move in the direction of the surgeon’s hands, wrist, and finger movements made at the console.
