Gastrointestinal cancers are very different from other cancers of the body in many ways. One, it is usually more aggressive than cancers in other parts of the body such as the breast, head and neck and pelvis. They frequently present late due to their silent nature where endoscopic or surgical palliation remains the only option. When picked up early, surgical removal is the best way to treat them. Few tumours respond to chemotherapy or radiotherapy despite progress in recent times. Surgical resections of tumors in stomach, gall bladder, bile duct, liver, pancreas, colon and rectum are more demanding, time taking and requires great understanding of regional anatomy.
The entire medical practice is progressing towards super specialization and team work and cancer management is no exception. In an effort to deliver the best treatment, surgeons are closely working with oncologists and endoscopists to provide a protocolised treatment. Surgeons are updating themselves with cancers of a particular region or area to ensure the best possible management.
At DSC , we believe that we should strive to provide safe, rational, evidence based treatment for GI cancers. Our team specializes in doing surgery for GI cancers and is probably the only center in Eastern India to provide Gastrointestinal Cancer surgery laparoscopically too.*
