Our Uniqueness

Minimal Access Cancer Surgery

In Minimal Access Surgery, rather than making big incisions and entering the patient’s body cavity, a surgeon makes small holes of 0.5 to 1 cm in the patient’s abdomen or thorax, and then introduces a miniature telescope which shows magnified vision and further uses a stick-like instrument to perform the task. This procedure is known as a laparoscopy or a thoracoscopy. Depending on the organs that are being removed, the surgery is called thoracoscopic esophagectomy, laparoscopic colectomy and so on.
The benefits of this minimally invasive approach are both short term and long term. Immediate benefits are less postoperative pain, less requirement of analgesics, early ambulation of the patient, early bowel function, less risk of infection, and quicker recovery time. Long-term benefits include a lower risk of an incision hernia and no restriction in your day to day activities.

Prolife Cancer Centre & Research Institute is one of the best hospitals for cancer treatment in Pune. I visited Prolife Cancer Centre & Research Institute during June 2022 since my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. We first consulted Dr. Sumit Shah. After reviewing the reports, he suggested Surgery and by Chemotherapy followed treatment. I am very thankful to Dr. Sumit Shah since he helped us in each and every aspect during the entire course of treatment. He is a great doctor and more than that a very good human being. No words would be enough for us to thank him. I would also like to thank Dr. Sumit Shah for successfully operating my mother.

We visited Dr Sumit to consult about a mole that was on my daughter's knee. We were scared as the first doctor we consulted had informed as it was squamous carcinoma. But Dr Sumit assured us that it was nothing much to worry about and explained us everything. The way he explained made us feel at ease and the surgery also went very smoothly. We will surely recommend him as he is one of the best doctor in this field.
