New Delhi, January 28
Using an innovative technique, doctors have surgically removed a tumor from the face of a 46-year-old cancer patient in a “scarless surgery” at a private facility here, hospital authorities claimed on Friday.
The team of doctors approached his oral cavity by making four small holes, measuring 8 mm each, under the patient’s collar bone. His cancer presented as an ulcer on the right lower cheeks and tongue, they said.
The operation was performed in December at the BLK-Max Hospital in central Delhi, led by Dr Surender Kumar Dabas, senior director & head of department, surgical oncology & robotic surgery, BLK-Max hospital and at Max hospital, Shalimar Bagh.
Onco surgeons performed scarless removal of the face tumor from the 46-year old patient, robotically, the hospital said in statement.
Using an innovative and novel technique for cancer treatment, doctors excised the stage-2 oral cancer tumor from his face, it added. ,
