Minimally Invasive Cancer Surgery
Surgeons at The Mount Sinai Health System have been pioneers in the field of laparoscopic surgery. Over the past two decades, the range of abdominal surgical procedures that can be performed with minimally invasive (or laparoscopic) techniques has expanded enormously. Now, a growing amount of cancer surgery can also be carried out safely, quickly, and efficiently through a number of small incisions. Mount Sinai's Surgical Oncology team applies these cutting edge techniques while never compromising the principles of cancer surgery.
In the division of Surgical Oncology, we offer minimally invasive surgery for cancer of the esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, colon and rectum, and peritoneal malignancies. The common feature shared by all of these procedures is that laparoscopic surgery allows for less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, and minimal scarring.
Each patient scheduling an operation is evaluated for possible laparoscopic surgery. Our surgeons are available for consultation to determine if you are a candidate for minimally invasive surgery. Some examples of our laparoscopic surgical oncology procedures include:
- Laparoscopic lymph node biopsy
- Laparoscopic transhiatal esophagectomy
- Laparoscopic gastrectomy
- Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy
- Laparoscopic hepatectomy
- Laparoscopic small bowel resection
- Laparoscopic colectomy
- Laparoscopic HIPEC
