Lung And Esophageal Cancer

Several surgical interventions are available for the management of lung and esophageal cancer. The type of surgery done depends upon several factors, including the disease stage, the patient's age, and their overall health status.

Our Offerings

  • Esophagectomy: Esophagectomy involves the removal of some or the entire esophagus to treat esophageal cancer. If the cancer is detected early and is limited to the esophagus, partial or total esophagectomy may cure the disease.
  • Lung Cancer Resection: Lung resection is a major surgical procedure that involves removing the abnormal tissues of the lungs as a treatment for lung cancer. Lung cancer resection surgery can be performed through a conventional procedure, known as thoracotomy, or through advanced minimally invasive procedures , such as laparoscopic surgery or robot-assisted surgery.
  • Lobectomy: The lungs are divided into five lobes. Lobectomy is performed when the cancer is limited to only one lobe of the lung. Bilobectomy involves the removal of two lobes of the lungs.
  • Segmentectomy: Each lobe of the lung is divided into several segments. Surgeons, during segmentectomy, remove multiple lung segments and preserve the unaffected lung tissues.
  • Wedge Resection: It involves removing the abnormal tissue of the lungs in the form of triangular slices that also involve healthy tissues.
  • Pneumonectomy: Pneumonectomy involves the removal of the entire lung, which is affected by cancer. There are two lungs in humans. Although the person may live a healthy life with one lung, it is believed that patients with underlying lung diseases and the elderly, may have progressive deterioration in lung function.
  • Sublobar Resection and Intraoperative Brachytherapy: Sublobar resection includes segmental and wedge resection and is performed in patients not eligible for standard lobectomy. Brachytherapy is the process of placing beads containing radioactive substances near the tumor to kill cancer cells.
  • Bronchoplastic Lung-Sparing Techniques: Bronchoplasty is the process that involves repair or reconstruction of the bronchus after lung surgeries, such as lobectomy, wedge resection, or segmental resection.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation Using Catheter: It is a minimally invasive procedure used for destroying lung cancer cells by using radiofrequency energy.
