Venkateshwar Hospital offers state-of-the-art services for early and accurate diagnosis, staging, treatment and hospital-based care of gastro-intestinal cancer patients. Presence of latest equipment and technology at the hospital ensures the delivery of world-class, comprehensive GI cancer treatment. This also includes a dedicated Department of GI Surgical Oncology.

Department of GI Surgical Oncology

It consists of a team of highly skilled surgeons with extensive experience in operating GI cancer patients. Most gastro-intestinal cancers (esophagus, stomach, large intestine, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, etc.) are curable if detected early, and surgery is the main treatment modality for them (curative surgery). The department performs a full range of these curative gastro-intestinal cancer surgeries with high precision and efficiency.

Minimal Access Cancer Surgeries

Minimal access surgeries are completed with one or more small incisions instead of a large incision, with the help of a video camera-enabled scope. This helps in early patient recovery, decreased side effects, small surgical scars and better disease outcomes.

The team performs liver transplant surgery for liver cancer (Hepatocellular Carcinoma) as well. The scope of the surgeries performed also includes surgeries to help in relieving symptoms of advanced cancer (Palliative Surgery).
