Technology Used

At Onkaulogy Kombine, we make sure our patients get not only the best technology but also surgeons who are well versed and at ease with every aspect of surgical technology. We believe that a trained, experienced surgeon is more important than the best technology he/she uses.

To offer our patients the best there is in surgical care of cancer, our team looks into every case individually to understand if the patient requires open surgery and/or if more advanced technology like minimally invasive cancer surgery will work. It’s our experience with technology that sets Onkaulogy Kombine apart.

Onkaulogy Kombine offers a broad range of treatment options, including robotic-assisted surgery, laparoscopic surgery, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and transoral laser surgery. In fact, we were the the first to introduce RFA (Radiofrequency Ablation) or mini-flaps which are used in breast re-construction surgeries.

The reason we believe in minimal invasion during surgery is because the benefits are many.

Our experienced and expertly trained surgeons perform procedures using surgical tools that are placed into the patient’s body through tiny incisions. The benefits of such pin point accuracy in surgery are that the patients often experience a faster recovery, less pain, less bleeding and scarring, lower risk of infection, fewer complications, and better quality of life.

Understanding some of the minimally invasive surgeries we perform

  • Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC): The application of cytotoxics via a pressurised aerosol in the abdominal or thoracic cavity is a new method of intraperitoneal chemotherapy, which allows a homogeneous distribution of the chemotherapeutic agent within the abdomen. Low-dose PIPAC is applied through minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgery. This is a feasible treatment option in peritoneal carcinomatosis of colorectal, gastric and ovarian origin – amongst other indications.
  • Laparoscopic Surgery: The surgeon inserts a tiny telescope-like viewing tube (laparoscope) and other surgical instruments through a “keyhole” incision near the belly button. The surgeon’shands controls the instruments while he or she views a magnified surgical field on a two-dimensional video monitor.
