GEM Comprehensive Digestive Cancer Care

We pioneered,

 World learnt from us

One of the earliest centers in world to prove laparoscopic cancer surgery was as effective as open surgery for Cancer Care. Futher, we also showed this world that laparoscopic cancer surgery was much superior to open surgery in terms of patient comfort. Today with the unstoppable efforts of Prof.C.Palanivelu and his team, through their innovations have shown that any kind of gastrointestinal cancers like oesophagus, cancer stomach, liver, pancreas, intestines, uterus etc can be safely removed. With the newer technologies in surgery and imaging like the da Vinvi robotic system, 4K and 3D laparoscopy, the magnification and visualisation is now 10 times better than the human eye, making these surgeries superior translating to better outcomes.
