The head and neck team has surgeons with vast experience in complex surgical procedures, including cranio-facial surgery, conservative laryngeal surgery, and voice rehabilitation procedures after laryngectomy.
For diseases of the breast, we have a dedicated surgeon who specializes in conservative breast surgery, oncoplastic surgery, and breast reconstructive surgery.
Surgery plays a pivotal role in management of most solid cancers. While surgery alone is adequate for early cancers, most advanced tumors require multi modality treatment. The department of Surgical Oncology has dedicated surgical specialists, for management of cancers of the head neck, breast, thorax, gastro-intestinal tract, female reproductive system,bone & soft tissue and genitor-urinary tract. These team of specialists are complemented by reconstructive surgeon (for complex reconstruction including micro-vascular free flaps after ablative surgery for oral and other cancer), radiologists for accurate imaging with latest machines and onco-pathologist for tissue diagnosis and staging, intensivists, other medical and rehabilitation specialist of the hospital.
Robotic Surgery: Robotic or Robot-assisted surgery integrates advanced technology with the surgeon’s expertise. The surgeon gets a 10x magnified, high-definition 3D-image of the body’s intricate anatomy and uses the console to handle special surgical instruments that are smaller, flexible and manoeuvrable than the human hand. The robot replicates the surgeon’s hand movements while minimizing hand tremors. The specialist thus can operate with enhanced precision, dexterity and control even during the most complex procedures.
