About Care Speciality Hospital

Welcome to official website of Dr. Mahesh Pawar, one of the finest and dedicated, surgical oncologists in Pune. Surgery is one of the most common treatments for many type of cancers. Cancer surgery (oncosurgery) involves cutting away malignant (cancerous) tissue by using a scalpel or high-energy light beams (lasers).

Every cancer operation is unique because every patient is unique. Therefore when making a decision for yourself or your loved one, what matters is whether your surgeon will be there for you before, during and after your surgery. Most patients when faced with the diagnosis of cancer are overwhelmed. They often travel great distances from one city to other or sometimes to international destinations, assuming they are doing so in order to obtain the best available care.

Cancer Hospital in Pune

Their loved ones want only the best cancer surgeon to operate. However, what they are not aware of is that the top cancer surgeon they wait weeks or longer to get an appointment may not be the surgeon who will actually perform the whole surgery. Instead he/she may be supervising the fellows in training while their loved one is getting operated. This is aspect is as important to consider as choosing the best oncosurgeon because the outcome of surgery can be totally different when your chosen surgeon performs the surgery versus when he/she just supervises it.

How can we Help you?

For many patients, surgery plays an important role either alone or in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy for cancer. Your cancer surgeon or also called as an oncosurgeon may recommend surgery in following circumstances:

  • For confirming a cancer diagnosis
  • Removing a tumor
  • To judge the size and extent of the cancer (staging)
  • Reconstructing a part of the body
  • Palliative surgery to relieve cancer-related symptoms
Surgical Oncology
A surgical oncologist removes the tumor and nearby tissue during surgery. He or she also performs certain types of biopsies to help diagnose cancer.
Medical Oncology
Medical oncology is a subspecialty of internal medicine, is closely associated with hematology and deals with tumors occurring in all organ systems.
Radiation Oncology
Radiation oncology is a modality of treatment that involves the controlled use of radiation beams to treat cancer and other symptoms caused by cancer.
Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer (cytotoxic) drugs to destroy cancer cells. Cytotoxic means toxic to cells. Cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs disrupt.

Different type of cancer surgeries performed by Dr. Mahesh Pawar

Staging surgery

Determines the extent of cancer. Staging surgery can sometimes be done without an incision by using an endoscope to view the suspicious area and take a tissue sample. For abdominal tumors, a laparoscope is used to view the area, a procedure that involves a small incision in the abdominal cavity done under general anesthesia.

Preventive surgery

Used to keep cancer from occurring. Many colon cancers can be prevented by removing precancerous polyps before they become malignant. Women at high risk for breast cancer due to family history or genetic mutations may decide to have their breasts removed to prevent cancer from occurring. Preventive surgery is also known as prophylactic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery

Returns the body to normal or near-normal appearance or function following cancer treatment. The most common is breast reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy (breast removal). Facial reconstruction and testicular implants are other examples of reconstructive surgery.

Curative surgery

Involves removal of a cancerous tumor. It works best on localized cancers that haven’t yet spread to other parts of the body, and is often followed by radiation therapy or chemotherapy to make sure all cancerous cells have been removed.

Supportive surgery

Used to help with other cancer treatments. For example, some chemotherapy devices require a port (connecting device) to be inserted under the skin.

Minimally invasive surgery

Employs advanced techniques to remove tumors through tiny incisions.

Palliative surgery

Used to improve a patient’s quality of life by easing pain or other symptoms caused by advanced or untreatable cancer. Palliative surgery is not a cure or anti-cancer treatment.
