Minimally invasive techniques of endoscopic surgery are used at Asklepios. Endoscope with instruments and video camera is lowered into the esophagus. If size of the carcinoma is small, it is cauterized by high-frequency diathermic current with the help of electrode or excised by a loop.
For larger sizes of esophagus tumor, surgeries are performed with a robot, which significantly reduces the risk of postoperative complications. During the removal of a part of esophagus, it is replaced by a special prosthesis made of healthy tissues of patient's intestine.The efficiency of treatment for esophageal cancer at Asklepios is high - over 90% of patients achieve a long-term remission or complete recovery.
