Kidney Cancer surgery in India at Mumbai and Delhi with modern healthcare services

  1. 1. Kidney cancer surgery in India at Mumbai and Delhi with modern healthcare services Kidney cancer surgery in India at Mumbai and Delhi is very popular as facilities provided by Indian hospitals are comparable with any other major hospital world-wide. Indian surgeons are leaders in diagnosing and treating people with kidney cancer, and bring comprehensive, compassionate care to each patient coming for kidney cancer surgery in India supported by an array of state-of-the-art equipments to offer services that are unique and far superior to anything presently available. Over the years Indian hospitals at Mumbai and Delhi have been treating patients from various countries like USA, UK, Canada, Pakistan, Iran, Malaysia, Oman etc with a commitment to provide quality services, compassion and competence in order to meet all kinds of needs of patients coming from all over the world. Types of kidney cancer surgery Curing cancer that has not spread Stage 1 and 2 cancers are most likely to be curable with surgery. It is sometimes possible to cure stage 3 cancers with surgery if the surgeon can get all the cancer out. Either the whole kidney (radical nephrectomy) or just the affected part of the kidney (partial nephrectomy) can be removed. Radical nephrectomy This is the most common type of surgery for kidney cancer that has not spread. The surgeon will remove the whole kidney with the tissues around it, including the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland is attached to the kidney. Some lymph nodes in the area will also be removed. The surgery is fairly major but if your cancer has not spread, this is all the treatment you will need. Partial nephrectomy This means removing the cancer and part of the kidney surrounding it. Some of the kidney is left behind. You may hear your doctor call this 'nephron sparing surgery'. The nephron is the filtering unit of the kidney, so this just means that you will have some working kidney left after the operation. Nephron sparing surgery only used to be done in special cases, for example if • Your other kidney is damaged • You only have one kidney • You have cancer in both kidneys
  2. 2. Keyhole surgery Doctors prefer to call this ‘minimal access surgery’ or ‘laparoscopic surgery’. It means having an operation without needing a major incision (wound site). The surgeon uses an instrument that is a bit like a telescope. This is called a laparoscope. It has a camera so the surgeon can see inside the body. The surgeon will usually make a number of small cuts through your skin. They can put the laparoscope and other small instruments through these to carry out the surgery. So you will end up with 3 or 4 small wounds, each a centimeter or so long. The surgeon can manipulate the instruments and watch what he or she is doing on the camera. It is possible for an experienced surgeon to remove a whole kidney or part of a kidney using laparoscopic surgery. The advantages of laparoscopic surgery over normal ‘open’ surgery are • You are likely to be more comfortable and need less painkilling medication after your operation • You can usually go home from hospital more quickly • You usually recover from the operation more quickly There are drawbacks. The operation may take longer, so you may be under anaesthetic for longer. In about 1 in 100 (1%) of these operations, the surgeon has to switch to regular ‘open’ surgery during the procedure. This could be because the position or size of the tumour makes it difficult to reach, or because there is difficulty controlling bleeding. Treatment after surgery In most cases, the operation to remove your kidney will not affect your bladder. This means you will not need a urostomy (a bag to collect your urine). But you might need a drainage tube (urinary catheter) from your bladder for a few days after your operation. If your surgeon is satisfied that all the cancer has been removed, you won't need any further treatment. If the surgeon is concerned that some cancer cells may have been left behind, you may need to have immunotherapy treatment. In some cases, you may be offered a course of radiotherapy. Relieving symptoms Even if your cancer is unlikely to be cured with surgery, it may still be worth you having an operation to remove it. Your doctor may call this a palliative nephrectomy. Sometimes the primary cancer causes troublesome symptoms that can be successfully treated by removing the kidney. The kidney tumour may be causing you pain locally, or causing blood in your urine. Or you may have general symptoms such as fevers or
  3. 3. weakness. The tumour can upset levels of chemicals in your blood, which can cause all sorts of symptoms, including sickness or drowsiness. In kidney cancer, general symptoms are sometimes caused by chemicals called cytokines that are released by the tumour. Removing the tumour can get rid of these symptoms. Removing cancer spread This is very specialist surgery. It is becoming more common as it is possible to slow down a cancer and so give a longer and better quality of life to those with advanced cancer. In some cases, it may even be possible to cure a cancer by removing a single area of cancer spread. Kidney cancer surgery procedure Surgery is the most common treatment for kidney cancer. Urologic surgeons at Indian hospitals have extensive experience performing minimally invasive procedures, such as robot-assisted partial nephrectomy, which enables extremely precise incisions and rapid suturing, decreases surgical scarring, and leads to faster postsurgical healing. Indian surgeons also perform other minimally invasive, state-of-the-art techniques such as radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation. Minimally invasive options offer more precisely-targeted procedures to limit tissue damage, speed recovery and ensure as much continued normal kidney function as possible, with the least amount of discomfort and risk of complications. Minimally invasive treatment options are different for each patient depending on the extent of their disease. Complications of kidney cancer surgery The commonest complications of surgery are infections and blood clots. Infections can develop in your lungs, or your wound site The signs of a wound infection are • Redness • Pain • Swelling • Oozing from the wound Blood clots can develop because you are not moving around as much as usual.
