Open, Laparoscopic and Robotic Procedures for GI cancers
Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer is the group of cancers that affect the gastrointestinal tract and other organs that are contained within the digestive system, including the oesophagus, pancreas, stomach, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary system, and small intestine. In earlier days, surgery was a unanimous option and considered the chief curative treatment in GI cancers. The possibilities range from open surgery to minimally invasive methods like laparoscopy or robotic surgery.

Complexities in Open, Laparoscopic and Robotic Procedures for GI cancers
While a maximum element of risk is involved in any cancer surgery, minimally invasive procedures run a low risk. However, the chances of infection depend on the patient’s health profile.
