Colorectal And Gastrointestinal Cancer

Surgery is one of the preferred management options for colorectal and gastrointestinal cancer. The goals of these surgeries are to remove most or all of the cancerous tissues while preserving the maximum possible functional ability of the gastrointestinal system.

Our Offerings

  • Esophagogastrectomy: This surgery involves the removal of the esophagus and some part of the stomach. The surgery is recommended for treating esophageal cancer or managing precancerous diseases, such as Barrett's esophagus.
  • Ileoanal J-pouch: It is also known as a J-pouch surgery. The surgery allows the patients to excrete the wastes normally after removing the entire large intestine (rectum and colon).
  • Laparoscopic colon resection: Laparoscopic colon resection surgery is minimally invasive surgery performed with a laparoscope. This surgery has fewer side effects than conventional surgery.
  • Small bowel resection: This surgery involves removing a section of the small intestine in case of blockage or underlying medical conditions.
  • Total gastrectomy: The surgeon performs a total gastrectomy to remove the entire stomach.
  • Colectomy: The types of colectomy include total and partial colectomy.
      Right hemicolectomy: The colon has two portions, i.e., right and left. The right hemicolectomy involves the removal of the right portion of the colon.
      Transverse colectomy: Removal of the transverse colon is known as a transverse hemicolectomy.
      Left hemicolectomy: Removal of the left section of the colon is known as a left hemicolectomy.
      Sigmoid colectomy: Removal of the sigmoid colon is known as a sigmoid colectomy.
  • Anterior resection of the rectum for upper rectal cancer: Anterior resection involves the removal of the upper section of the colon and then joining the colon to the remaining section of the rectum.
  • Low anterior resection for mid-rectal cancers: Low anterior resection involves the removal of the middle segment of the rectum.
  • Ultralow anterior resection for low rectal cancers: The surgeon removes the lower portion of the rectum during ultralow anterior resection.
  • Ultralow anterior resection with sphincter preservation and colonic anastomosis for very low rectal cancers: The surgeon preserves the activity of the sphincter during resection of the lower portion of the colon and attaches it to the rectum.
  • Abdominoperineal resection and permanent colostomy for low rectal and anal canal cancers: It involves complete removal of the distal colon, anal sphincter complex, and rectum in cases of low rectal and anal canal cancers.
