Surgery for locally advanced or locally recurrent rectal cancer

Surgery for locally advanced or locally recurrent rectal cancer

  • It is well established that tumour removal (R0 resection with sufficient margin) offers a far better prognosis for rectal cancer than any other treatment like chemotherapy or radiotherapy and is the only promising treatment for a complete cure.
  • Surgery for locally advanced or locally recurrent rectal cancer can be difficult and you may have been told that your tumour is inoperable. However, it may be too soon to give up. In some cases, depending on the specifics of your disease, we may be able to help you using our deep experience and expertise in specialised surgical methods.
  • We can offer:
    • Specialist surgical techniques
    • Preoperative chemoradiotherapy (neoadjuvant treatment)
    • Preoperative imaging using our unique protocols
    • Multidisciplinary approach involving urology, orthopaedics, vascular surgery, etc.
  • We are endeavouring to share and develop our unique techniques and knowledge through collaborative work with other medical institutions in Japan and overseas.
