The conditions of modern living, changes in nutrition, and the progress in diagnostics have led to an increased number of malignities of the digestive tract. This trend was followed by an improvement in surgical and medical treatments, and the multidisciplinary approach lead to an extension of the life expectancy and a large number of patients that make a full recovery. After finding out about a malign disease, patients are faced with a fear of potentially unwanted results. In those moments, it is important to make composed decisions for an adequate surgical-oncological treatment.
In Atlas General Hospital, it is important to keep up with the latest trends and protocols of treatments that are also used in world capitals. Going by the protocols enhances the chances for a full recovery and elongates the life expectancy. The expert approach is important for the treatment as well as the improvement of the quality of life in the preoperative stages and the late postoperative recovery.
Surgical oncology is now standardized and it is implied that the surgeries are done by precisely established principles that imply removing the malign changes as well as all potential places it could spread to. After removing the tumor, it is sent to a patohistological analysis, where the sent sample is microscopically studied. After receiving the results of the analysis, the medical advisory board makes a decision on a potential additional oncological treatment or to continue the diagnostic checkups to reveal if the disease returns.
Atlas General Hospital provides a complete treatment, from the moment of establishing the adequate diagnosis, the presurgical preparation, expert surgical treatment, postoperative recovery and support, potential adjuvant oncological treatment, and postoperative diagnostic analysis. We emphasize the significance of multidisciplinary treatment since it’s the only approach that was proven as the best for the patients. The surgeries can be done in the classic or laparoscopic method, depending on the location and the stage of progress of the disease. No matter the type of operative treatment, it is extremely important that it is done by an experienced surgical oncologist to enhance the chance of a full recovery.
