Our Advanced Surgical Treatments
- 5x5 protocol: This shorter, more aggressive approach to rectal cancer management combines radiation and chemotherapy for treatment before surgery.
- Cytoreductive surgery and heated chemotherapy (HIPEC): This surgical removal of the tumor is followed by heated chemotherapy drugs delivered directly into the abdomen.
- Minimally invasive surgery, including laparoendoscopic surgery: Several techniques that can reduce the risk of infection and pain and shorten recovery time include laparoendoscopic surgery, which can remove failing organs through one small incision.
- Robotic surgery: These techniques for less invasive and more precise surgical procedures use a console that controls the surgeon’s movements.
- Transanal endoscopic surgery (TEM): This alllows surgeons to remove a polyp or superficial lesion through the anus without making an incision.
