Techniques Of Surgery

  • Cryosurgery
  • Cryosurgery
  • What is cryosurgery? A Cryosurgery is a form of treatment that utilizes intense cold to destroy cancer cells. Also called cryotherapy or cryoablation. During a Cryosurgery session, the physician freezes the cancer cells to kill them. All cell...
  • Electrosurgery
  • Electrosurgery
  • What is Electrosurgery? Electrosurgery is the burning of skin tissue with an electric current that runs through a metal instrument or needle. It is a procedure that uses an electric current to cut, remove, or destroy tissue and control bleeding. ...
  • Endoscopic Surgery
  • Endoscopic Surgery
  • What is Endoscopic Surgery? Minimally invasive non-robotic Surgery is also known as Endoscopic Surgery. You may also be familiar with terminologies such as laparoscopic surgery, thoracoscopic Surgery or Surgery with a “keyhole.” They a...
  • Laser Surgery
  • Laser Surgery
  • What is Laser Surgery? Laser therapy uses a very small, concentrated light beam to shrink or kill cancer cells. It is used to cut out cancer cells without damaging other tissue. Laser therapy can be utilized to: Remove precancerous tumours and...
  • Mohs Micrographic Surgery
  • Mohs Micrographic Surgery
  • What is Mohs Surgery? Mohs Surgery is also called Mohs Micrographic Surgery. It is a surgical technique that slowly eliminates a tumour in layers until there is no cancer. The aim is to get rid of the tumour and retain as much healthy tissue a...
  • Percutaneous ethanol injection
  • Percutaneous ethanol injection
  • What is Percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI)? For some time scientists have known that ethanol can kill cancer cells. An injection of ethanol (alcohol) injected directly into a tumour through the skin, can kill cancer cells. The needle is directe...
  • Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Radiofrequency Ablation
  • What is Radiofrequency Ablation? Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses radio wave heat to kill cancer cells. Radiofrequency is a form of electric energy. Ablation means destruction. You have RFA through a probe (electrode) which goes into the tumour...
  • Robotic Surgery
  • What is Robotic Surgery? Robotic Surgery is a type of laparoscopic (or thoracoscopic) Surgery where the doctor uses precise robotic arms to control some of the surgical instruments. The advantages of this type of Surgery are largely the sam...
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  • What is Stereotactic Radiosurgery? Stereotactic radiosurgery, or SRS, is a means of administering radiation to brain tumours. It is used for treating tumours that begin in the brain as well as brain metastases (cancer that has spread from other p...
  • High-intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
  • High-intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
  • What is High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)? High intensity focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a treatment that tries to destroy cancer cells with high-frequency sound waves. HIFU does not pass through solid bone and air; therefore, it is not ...
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery
  • What is Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery? VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery) is a type of minimally invasive thoracic Surgery performed with a thoracoscope. The thoracoscope transmits images of the operating area to a monitor located ne...
