Breast Conservation Surgery and Oncoplasty

Oncoplasty is a newer approach to breast cancer surgery and involves combining the safe removal of cancerous breast tissue, whilst leaving the breasts in an aesthetically acceptable way. Use of Oncoplasty techniques has radically changed and expanded the boundaries of breast conservation surgeries. We provide a wide range of Oncoplasty options for our patients.

Composite Resections for Oral Cancers

Mouth cancer, also known as oral cancer, is where a tumour develops in a part of the mouth. It may be on the surface of the tongue, the inside of the cheeks, the roof of the mouth (palate), the lips or gums. There are three main treatment options for mouth cancer, including: Surgery to remove the cancerous cells, along with a tiny bit of the surrounding normal tissue or cells to ensure the cancer is completely removed Radiotherapy– where beams of radiation are directed at the cancerous cells Chemotherapy– where powerful medicines are used to kill cancerous cells We provide a complete range of expertise required for successful surgical removal of most of the Oral cancers.

D2 Radical Gastrectomy for Stomach Cancers

D2 Radical Gastrectomy is an advanced surgical procedure which offers the best curative potential for people suffering from Cancer of the Stomach. This is a highly specialized procedure which requires good surgical skills for a successful outcome. Dr Shiva Kumar Kuppuswamy has performed many successful D2 Radical Gastrectomy with many patients still doing good many years after the surgery.

Whipples Procedure for Pancreas cancers

A Whipple procedure — also known as a pancreaticoduodenectomy — is a complex operation to remove the head of the pancreas, the first part of the small intestine (duodenum), the gallbladder and the bile duct. It is the most often used surgery to treat pancreatic cancer that's confined to the head of the pancreas. The Whipple procedure is a difficult and demanding operation and can have serious risks. However, this surgery is often lifesaving, particularly for people with cancer. Your chances of long-term survival after a Whipple procedure depend on your particular situation. For most tumors and cancers of the pancreas, the Whipple procedure is the only known cure.

Sphincter Preserving surgeries for Cancer Rectum

For Cancers of the Rectum(Motion Passage) traditionally treatment has been complete removal of the terminal large Intestine and the Rectum, which resulted in permanent Colostomy(i.e. Creation of an artificial outlet for stools over the abdoman, stools coming out of this colostomy is collected in a bag). Recent advances in Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy has allowed us to do surgery and remove the affected intestine with an opportunity to save the motion passage to a great extent. This gives the advantage of allowing the patient to pass stools through normal passage without affecting the ability to cure. In all our patients we try our best to save the motion passage so that quality of life is improved for our patients.

Partial Nephrectomy

Traditionally patients with tumours of the Kidney have been treated with Radical Nephrectomy i.e. Removal of whole Kidney with its covering tissue. However this results in significant loss of Kidney function. Recent developments have allowed us to remove only the portion of the kidney affected by tumour while saving most of the Kidney that's not affected by tumour in certain cases. This surgery is technically more difficult and also risky at times. Dr Shiva Kumar Kuppuswamy has extensive experience with Partial Nephrectomy. Many of his patients are still doing very good many years following such surgeries.

HIPEC Surgery

Hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) surgery is a two-step procedure that treats certain cancers in the abdomen. Cancerous tumors are surgically removed, and then heated chemotherapy drugs are applied directly inside the abdomen to eliminate the remaining cancerous cells. HIPEC surgery inserts high doses of chemotherapy directly into the abdomen, where traditional methods of chemotherapy cannot effectively reach. This innovative procedure can improve long-term outcomes and provide more treatment options for patients who have been diagnosed with inoperable or advanced stage cancer. Dr Shiva Kumar Kuppuswamy is well experienced with HIPEC surgery and post-operative management of these patients
