Cancer Surgery

The main purpose in surgical operations in cancer patients is to completely remove the cancerous tissue and tumor. In some cases, it is also necessary to clean off the cancerous cells in some areas like lymph nodes. In others, a limb has to be amputated, a situation which animals can easily adapt to. 
Surgical operations are used to remove cancerous tissues out of the body and to obtain samples for pathological examination (biopsy). Surgical operations play a significant role in the treatment, diagnosis and determination of metastasis and in some cases prevention of cancer in pets and in most cases it is the first step in the treatment of the disease. 

The main purpose in surgical operations in cancer patients is to completely remove the cancerous tissue and tumor. In some cases, it is also necessary to clean off the cancerous cells in some areas like lymph nodes. In others, a limb has to be amputated, a situation which animals can easily adapt to. 

It is of critical importance that the first surgical intervention is performed with expertise in order for the cancer to be treated successfully. The best opportunity to remove the cancer completely is during the first operation process when the normal tissues maintain their density. When the operation is being planned for some types of tumors, the success rate can be increased by using advanced imaging techniques such as CT or MRI. A cure is more likely during a surgical operation if the cancer is at its early stages and therefore limited to a single location in the body. 

When the cancerous tissues are removed, a certain amount of healthy tissue is also extracted so as to make sure no cancerous cells in microscopic amounts remain in the body. The healthy tissue that is extracted is determined by the type, location and the connection of the tumor to the surrounding tissues. The goal is to prevent a relapse. Since there is more damaged tissue, it is harder to surgically remove tumors that relapse locally. 

Some tumors might be benign but it is still necessary to remove most of them. All tumors removed from the body should be pathologically examined. Depending on the pathology results, a treatment plan is organized. If a tumor or the healthy tissues surrounding it cannot be completely removed due to its location, protocols determined by the pathology results also apply. 

In cases when it is deemed necessary by the oncologist, treatment process continues with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy, in others, these methods are used before the operation in order to decrease the size of the tumor. 

In our clinic, our experienced surgeon is accompanied by an anesthesia technician and our operations are performed in our operation room sterilized by UV ray with closed circuit gas anesthesia.
