TOP clinics for esophageal cancer treatment and diagnostics

We`ve found 113 specialized hospitals for treatment of esophageal cancer

Depending on the stage of esophageal cancer, the following treatment methods are used:

  • Ablation (radiofrequency, cryoablation, photodynamic);
  • Endoscopic submucosal resection;
  • Esophagectomy (removal of the esophagus).

 

Ablation for treatment of esophageal cancer is used only in case of in situ cancer when the tumor has not yet sprouted into neighboring tissues. This is also called 0 stage of cancer. At stage 1, minimally invasive procedure is also performed - submucosal resection, if the tumor does not grow into the muscle layer. In all other cases, the esophagus is removed completely. At 3 and 4 stages, neoadjuvant (before surgery) radiation therapy is performed.

Treatment

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.

I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the treatment which I received in Germany. The fact that it did not lead to the treatment which I was hoping for was wholly related to the nature of my disease. As it was I gained some valuable insights into a fresh development in my disease which has been helpful back in the UK.
