About the offer

Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) treats esophageal cancer, mainly when it hasn't spread deep into the esophagus walls. EMR starts with a thorough assessment of the patient's health history and a physical examination. Next, chest surgery, oncology, and anesthesiology specialists give expert advice on the treatment. The patient then undergoes lab tests and imaging studies to help doctors understand the cancer stage and determine if endoscopic surgery is the best option. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. A flexible endoscope with a light and a camera is passed down the patient's throat, allowing the doctor to see inside the esophagus. Using special tools, the doctor can remove the tumor from the lining. Then the tumor sample is sent to a biopsy. After the procedure, the patient is monitored in a recovery room. Endoscopic tumor resection is used as a standalone treatment or combined with radiation or chemo drugs in more advanced cases. EMR is less invasive than traditional surgery, so there is usually less pain and a quicker recovery time. It also allows the patient to preserve their esophagus. In addition, endoscopic esophagus operation aims to remove the cancerous lesion, relieve symptoms, prevent cancer from spreading, and improve the patient's quality of life.
