Frozen section and intra-operative Pathology Consultations are essential for good and optimum cancer surgery. Frozen sections ensure adequate clear margins during tumour resections and wherever required, provide an intra-operative histological diagnosis where pre-operative evaluation may not have done so. Thus, second surgeries with added risks of anaesthesia are totally avoided and we are able to provide our patients with the best surgical oncology services.
Each and every patient is evaluated for anaesthesia fitness and any other associated disease (s) to prevent any complications on the operating table.
Patients are psychologically prepared about the type of anaesthesia and surgical procedure, and its outcome. Precautions are taken pre-operatively, post-operatively and after discharge. Post-operatively patients are under constant supervision and care of critical-care experts and nursing staff. This ensures complete cooperation of the patient, for best surgical outcome.
Patients who have lost their voice after laryngectomy or had to sacrifice their body parts (breast) or limbs, are rehabilitated to their normal pattern of living and cosmetically acceptable social positions in the society. Surgical Oncologists, Nurses, Reconstructive Surgeons, Psychologists, Social Workers, Speech Therapists, Physiotherapists, and Occupational Therapists, together work as a team to rehabilitate the patient.
All patients are advised to come for regular and long term follow up after surgery and completion of adjuvant therapy (Radiation / Chemo / Treatment of any other associated diseases). This ensures early detection of recurrence,and prompt action to achieve excellent quality of life.
