Treatment of Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian Cancer is a malignancy which is on the rise in the Indian Subcontinent.
Ovarian malignancy usually gets evident in an advanced stage and has a high recurrence rate.
Treatment for Ovarian Cancer involves a thorough staging laparotomy which is done to minimize/eliminate any residual tumour load in the body which is then followed by histopathological examination and then chemotherapy.
Majority of the patients who are operated for an Ovarian Malignancy need post-surgical chemotherapy.
The patients which are typically referred to Dr. Jay Mehta are the ones who have been operated before but a complete surgical resection has not been done by the previous operating surgeon.
Though Dr. Jay Mehta is a well-known laparoscopic surgeon, Laparoscopic management currently has a limited role in the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer.
Dr. Jay Mehta is a trained Gynec-oncosurgeon and specializes in radical procedures associated with the pelvis as well as the upper abdomen.
Dr. Jay Mehta specializes in the following procedures for the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer:
- Staging Laparotomy including Complete Omentectomy
- Laparoscopic second-look surgery
- Laparoscopic Pelvic Lymphadenectomy for completion
- Laparoscopic Para-Aortic Lymphadenectomy for completion
- Complete Peritonectomy
- Surgeries for Resection of the Diaphragm, Spleen, Intestines, Para-Cardiac Lymph Nodes
- Laparoscopic Port Placement for chemotherapy.
For Performing Staging Laparotomy as a treatment of Ovarian Malignancy, Dr. Jay Mehta uses a novel instrument, called the SUSHRUT Power Cut, an instrument designed by Dr Mehta himself, which is a bipolar instrument with a limited lateral thermal spread.
This instrument greatly reduces the surgical time as well as vastly improves the coagulation of the tissues.
