Cancer is a disease characterized by an abnormal, uncontrolled growth of cells in previously healthy tissue. The words tumor, neoplasm and neoformation tend to be used synonymously to define this disease.
Oncology Surgery is the branch of General Surgery concerned with the surgical treatment of tumors.
- Peritoneal Carcinomatosis
- - Pseudomyxoma peritonei
- Carcinosis of gastrointestinal (colon cancer) or gynecological origin (ovarian cancer).
This approach allows a multi-disciplinary focus (participation of dermatologists, oncologists, radiologists, radiotherapists) to design the best possible treatment for each patient and subsequent monitoring on an individual basis.
It is precisely this multi-disciplinary vision that enables us to offer the best results in:
- Malignant Melanoma (MM) Surgery (extension of margins, sentinel lymph node technique, lymphadenectomy, isolated limb perfusion (ILP) in cutaneous MM metastases, surgical treatment of visceral metastases, electrochemotherapy of skin tumors).
- Sarcoma Surgery (removal of abdominal cavity sarcomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), soft tissue sarcoma of extremities).
- Peritoneal Carcinomatosis Surgery using cytoreductive surgery (complete removal of all visible tumor) and application of hyperthermic perfusion of the abdominal cavity.
