The Division of Surgical Oncology offers a state-of-the-art approach to cancer therapy that is centered around multi-disciplinary tumor boards and integrated practice unit clinics. We also prioritize clinical / translational research and applied basic laboratory investigations related to the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of malignant solid tumors. Our Physician investigators within the division have special interest in pancreatic, breast, colon, and gastric cancers, as well as sarcoma, melanoma and pseudomyxoma peritonei.
We at ACRI developed pioneering programs that have significantly improved the care of patients with solid tumors through clinical / translational research and innovative surgical approaches. The primary goal of the Surgical Oncology program is to provide quality state of the art care for its patients.
Cancer surgery is one of the most important modality of cancer treatment used for curing early stages of cancer of any part of the body from head to toe. Cancer surgery is also used for providing symptomatic relief to patients with advanced disease. ACRI undertakes all routine, high risk and emergency surgeries. High success rate with minimal complications has been the tradition of the Centre. Depending on indications and patient’s preference laser surgeries, endoscopic surgeries / open surgeries are performed.
