Apollo Proton Cancer Centre has successfully performed Rectal Cancer surgery with the Robotic Stapler on a patient from Bangladesh.

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 24 Jul,2021

Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC) has successfully operated on a female patient from Bangladesh suffering from rectal cancer, using Robotic Stapler for the first time. The patient with rectal cancer visited Apollo Proton Cancer Centre in March 2021. She was diagnosed with locally advanced rectal cancer and received chemotherapy with radiotherapy to shrink the cancer. She was re-evaluated in June 2021. Since the tumour had shrunk considerably with the previous treatment, the patient was counselled to undergo a robot-assisted surgical procedure, known as a low anterior resection. The surgery was performed by Dr. Ajit Pai, Senior Consultant, Lead GI Surgical Oncology and his team at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre on 3rd July 2021. The patient recovered well from the procedure and was discharged without any complications in 3 days.
