Our team practices organ-based oncology. By concentrating on a particular type of cancer, a specialist can ensure that the patient receives the best possible treatment. Laparoscopic surgery, Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS), Breast Conservation Surgery, Radio-guided surgery, and Robotic surgery are some of the options offered to selected cancer patients using Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS).
Each technique requires specific expertise and technology. Although these cannot be used without discretion, the majority of patients will qualify as candidates for MIS, especially those who present in earlier stages of the disease. These techniques usually involve very small cuts on the body as opposed to large, deforming incisions performed previously. Essentially, the surgery to remove the cancer is the same, except with the advantage of lesser pain and scars.
Paras Hospitals, Gurugram is one of the few hospitals in Delhi, NCR providing dedicated, exclusive organ-based treatment for cancer. MIS is the mainstay of treatment offered to cancer patients. The surgical team is headed by Dr. Vinay Samuel Gaikwad who specializes in gastrointestinal and hepatopancreatobiliary (GI&HPB) cancers.
Complex abdominal surgery such as colorectal cancers, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, and gallbladder cancer is being routinely performed by Minimally Invasive Surgery. Dr. Piyush Kumar Agarwal looks after Head and Neck as well as Breast cancers. Breast preservation and composite resections are his forte. Dr. Parveen Yadav specializes in Chest cancers. Surgeries of the esophagus, lung, and mediastinum are being performed by MIS.
