Surgery for lung and esophageal cancer is high risk. Using minimally invasive techniques, and streamlined post-operative care, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible care. This data includes patients who underwent surgery for lung and esophageal cancer
Our surgeons trained under the tutelage of Dr. James Luketich. As the world expert in Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy, Dr. Luketich’s technique has revolutionized care of the cancer patient. This advanced technique has made Osler a leader in the surgical treatment of esophageal cancer!
As we are one of the few centres in the world that offers Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy, our Hospital Length of Stay following Esophageal cancer surgery is half that of the provincial average. Keyhole surgery combined with our Enhanced Recovery Protocol ensures that patients recover quickly!
