Surgical Oncology

Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is the branch of oncology that focuses on the surgical management of tumors, both benign and cancerous tumors. The Department of Surgical Oncology was started in 2019 and is committed to:

  • Provide evidence-based, state-of-the-art multimodality care to cancer patients
  • Train doctors and nurses in evidence-based, comprehensive cancer care.
  • Conduct high-quality research in various aspects of cancer.

The department provides high-quality surgical care to cancer patients at par with the international standards through a team of specialized organ-specific cancer surgeons who offer surgeries for all types of cancers. We collaborate with other Oncology specialties, Radiology, Pathology, Nuclear Medicine, Psychiatry, Yoga& Naturopathy, Palliative medicine and other relevant specialties to provide multidisciplinary care to cancer patients. We have collaborations with National and International Institutions of excellence to promote training and research in the field of cancer surgery and cancer research.



Types & Forms of Surgery for cancer/tumour:
  • Surgery to diagnose cancer
  • Surgery to stage cancer
  • Surgery to cure or debulk cancer (radical surgery)
  • Surgery to cure cancer while preserving important functions (conservative surgery)
  • Surgery to prevent cancer (prophylactic surgery)
  • Surgery to support patients with cancer (Palliative or supportive surgery)
  • Reconstructive surgery

Surgery to cure cancer (Radical Surgery) is different from other surgeries. In Radical surgery, we remove the tumor along with some normal surrounding tissues and the related lymph nodes so that we can remove the cancer completely. This is also called R0 resection. Incomplete or inadequate surgery is the most common cause for cancer recurrence.

Conservative surgery is as radical as required (removes all cancer tissue) while preserving important organ functions e.g. Breast conservation surgery

Newer surgical techniques for cancer, like robotic or laparoscopic surgery, laser surgery, cryosurgery, radiofrequency ablation, etc., are less invasive, use different types of latest innovations. This leads too many advantages for the cancer patients, like:

  • Smaller wounds
  • Less pain
  • Shorter recovery times.
  • Better and early completion of treatment
  • Good cosmesis
  • Preservation of important functions

Robotic Cancer Surgery has proven to improve patient-related outcomes. PSG is the first hospital in Coimbatore to have the state-of-the-art fourth generation da Vinci X Robot and to offer Robotic Surgery for cancer patients at an affordable cost.
