Conventional open inguinal and ileo-inguinal block dissections are notorious for wound related problems (about 60%) which needs weeks of nursing to heal (Photo shows the wounds after 7 days of surgery). Wound related problems prolong recovery in these patients leading to suffering, increased cost of care, etc. With laparoscopy the trauma is much less and makes the treatment more acceptable. The Team MACS precisely addresses all these issues and works relentlessly for a better life.

The advantages of Video Endoscopic Inguinal (or Ileoinguinal) Lymphadenectomy (VEIL) over conventional open surgery include:

  • Least WOUND PROBLEMS
  • Least PAIN & DISCOMFORT
  • Least loss of IMMUNITY
  • COSMETICALLY SUPERIOR (Smallest wound & scar)
  • short HOSPITAL STAY
  • Quicker return to NORMAL LIFE & WORK
  • Get all the advantages of ROBOTIC surgery.
  • Best possible CURE RATE.

So, why choose conventional open surgery or robotic surgery when you can get all these benefits and more!

  • WHAT IS THE INGUINAL & ILIAC REGION ?

    The groin region in medical term is called inguinal region. The lower portion of belly (abdomen) that is covered by the hip bone is called iliac region. The region is important because of the presence of a large number of lymph nodes (small nodular structures that are present throughout the body that clear the tissue fluids) which drain lower limb (legs) and genital areas.

  • WHEN IS INGUINAL AND ILEO-INGUINAL BLOCK DISSECTION PERFORMED ?

    Inguinal and iliac block dissection is performed for cancers of lower limb (leg) and genital cancers (penis cancer among men and vulva cancer among women). The region or lymph nodes that need to be removed depend on the type of cancer. The cancers like melanoma & cancer of penis mostly need both inguinal and iliac region to be dissected. This procedure is called ileo-inguinal block dissection. If only inguinal region (groin) needs to be removed then it is called inguinal block dissection. This surgery when performed by open conventional method has nearly 60% risk of wound complications which needs weeks of nursing to heal. When this procedure is performed using laparoscopic surgical techniques, it is called Video Endoscopic Inguinal (or Ileo-inguinal) Lymphadenectomy (VEIL). VEIL is nearly always complication free.
