Colon cancer is one of the oncological diseases in the treatment of which the greatest progress has been achieved in the 21st century. Patient survival rates are increasing due to the introduction of new treatment methods. In addition, treatment is becoming less traumatic and safer for patients. Laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries have replaced open surgeries to remove colon tumors. They are performed at many clinics abroad. You can travel to one of the developed countries to be cured of cancer with the help of a robot-assisted colon resection.

  3. Why is it worth undergoing your treatment abroad?

Doctors remove a part of the colon and lymph nodes through short abdominal incisions using a robotic surgeon. Such operations are less traumatic and safer. Additional treatments can be used to suppress metastases in stages 3-4 of cancer.

You can undergo your treatment at the University Hospital of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the Charite University Hospital Berlin, or the University Hospital Marburg.

You do not have to worry about anything as the specialists from the Booking Health company will take care of the organization of your trip. They will provide you with a list of specialized hospitals, tell you about treatment methods, make an appointment for the near future, help you to come to the hospital, provide an interpreter, and a personal coordinator. Booking Health will support you until you return home after the completion of your successful treatment.

At what stage can robot-assisted surgery be performed?

 

A colon resection can be performed at any stage, from the very first to the most advanced. Even if distant metastases have spread, which are most often found in the liver, removal of the primary tumor can increase life expectancy by many years. In addition, a patient will require chemotherapy and metastasis-directed therapy, such as liver resection, ablation, or chemoembolization.

Surgery for colon cancer treatment is usually performed using an open surgical technique. Doctors make a large abdominal incision, cut through the colon above and below the tumor with a few extra centimeters of healthy tissue, and suture the ends together or form a colostomy if the operation is due to complications.

Surgeons in developed countries also use a surgical laparoscopic resection and a robot-assisted colon resection. These operations are minimally traumatic as they are performed through short abdominal incisions. Studies show that they are comparable in effectiveness to open surgical interventions, but only if you undergo your treatment at specialized centers and doctors have already performed a large number of such operations.

What is robot-assisted colon surgery?

 

Robot-assisted surgery is a higher level of development of laparoscopic surgery. Now the tools no longer need to be managed manually. Robotic hands perform the necessary manipulations, and a doctor is at a distance from a patient and controls the system with a remote control.

Here are some benefits of robot-assisted surgery over conventional laparoscopic operations:

  • greater scope for manipulators; 
  • a 3D image that is very clear; 
  • there is no hand tremor; 
  • the possibility of transforming the usual movements of the surgeon's hands into microsurgical manipulations to effectively work with blood vessels and nerves.

Why is it worth undergoing your treatment abroad?

 

Healthcare facilities in developed countries use the latest treatment methods, which are effective even in the advanced stages of cancer. These are not only robot-assisted operations, but also cytoreductive interventions, such as CRS and HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion), embolization or chemoembolization for liver metastases, and therapy with lutetium-177-DOTATATE.

If you choose to undergo your treatment abroad, you can expect good results, a minimal risk of complications, and a high quality of life after surgery. After removing a tumor, doctors restore the continuity of the digestive tract and provide an ability for self-defecation. If robot-assisted Da Vinci treatment is performed, you will lose a minimum of blood and quickly recover from the operation.

You are welcome to visit the Booking Health website to find prices and make your appointment for diagnostics, treatment, and general rehabilitation at the best price. We will help you to select the most suitable hospitals abroad and fully organize your trip for diagnostics, treatment, or postoperative recovery.
