BREAST SURGERIES (Basic to Advanced)

  • CONVENTIONAL SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER

    Surgery is a must for curing breast cancer. The type of surgery selected depends on the stage of cancer. Radical mastectomy and modified radical mastectomy are the two conventional procedures that are offered to patients with breast cancer.

    • Radical mastectomy The removal of the breast, chest muscles and all of the lymph nodes under the armpit. Though this was a standard procedure 50 years ago, presently it is used only when the tumor has spread to the chest muscles. This is a rare occurrence in the present day. This procedure is rarely required.
    • Modified radical mastectomy (MRM) This has been standard of care for breast cancer for many years. This procedure is less traumatic than radical mastectomy. This involves the removal of the breast, many of the lymph nodes under the arm (not all) and the lining over the chest muscles (not the muscles). This reduces the discomforts to the patient at the same time providing adequate cure. Today even this procedure has become obsolete. Today this surgery is performed only when it is not possible to save breast at all. However, in these patients also breast can be reconstructed in the same sitting or after completion of all treatments.
  • ADVANCED BREAST CANCER SURGERIES

    Minimally Invasive Breast Surgery (MIBS): Over the past 25-30 years the trend towards saving normal natural breast has increased supported by robust research. It has been proven that saving breast DOES NOT affect the cure rate (oncological outcome). Today increasing numbers of patients are able to undergo one of the types of minimally invasive breast cancer surgery and save their natural breast, improving the cosmetic outcome and quality of life for women undergoing breast cancer surgery.

    • Breast Conservation Surgery with Oncoplastic surgery. This involves removal of the cancer tissue in the breast as well as some of the normal breast tissue around it and the lining over the chest muscles below clearing all the cancer bearing tissue. Usually some of the lymph nodes under the arm are taken out (through a separate incision) and tested for possible spread of cancer. Oncolplastic surgery technique helps in giving normal contour (shape) to the breast after adequate removal of cancer tissue. The surgical options may include local tissues rotation or a tissue transfer from a distant area of your body (Latissimus Myocutaneous Flap) or prosthesis. This breast cancer surgery results in acceptable scars.
    • Skin Sparing Mastectomy and Reconstruction. Some situations require for the removal of entire breast along with nipple. Retaining natural skin over the breast gives the best cosmetic results compared to any other form of reconstruction (tissue transfers). The breast can be completely reconstructed through the same incision to restore the normal shape and contour in the same sitting. Nipple and areola can be reconstructed at a later time.
    • Nipple Areola Skin Sparing Mastectomy and Reconstruction Some situations require for the removal of entire breast tissue without need to remove nipple (extensive changes on mammography, multicentric cancer or prophylactic mastectomy for high genetic risks). Skin-sparing and nipple-sparing mastectomy is routinely performed through one or two short incisions placed at the perimeter of the breast. The breast can be completely reconstructed through the same wound to restore the normal shape and contour in the same sitting using one of the tissue flaps (from the back or belly). This gives almost normal looks to the breast.
    • Laparoscopic or Endoscopic or Robotic Breast Surgery: This is the most advanced form of breast surgery being performed at very few centers and very selectively. This is especially performed for the patients who are eligible for nipple areola skin sparing mastectomy (extensive changes on mammography, multicentric cancer or prophylactic mastectomy for high genetic risks). The entire surgery including flap reconstruction can performed with very tiny wounds with least possible pain and scaring
