Diagnostics, laparoscopy, surgery using robot assistants

The Seoul National University Hospital was formed in 1885. Today it is one of the leading medical institutions in the country, which has been actively accepting foreign patients since 1978. One of the directions of the hospital is the treatment of prostate cancer in men.

Prostate cancer is a fairly common type of malignant tumor, most commonly found in men older than 40 years. About 400,000 calls to medical centers with the disease are registered annually.

A comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer is carried out at the National Seoul University Hospital. Minimally invasive methods of surgical treatment are used, in which healthy tissues are minimally affected, which speeds up the recovery and makes the procedure itself safer for the body.

Leading experts, modern equipment, the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies are all here. Including robotic assisting technology for more accurate work and the most accurate operations.

Causes, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer

One of the first possible causes of prostate cancer is obesity. In thin people, the disease is much less common. Among other reasons can be identified:

heredity;

race (light-skinned people do not get sick so often);

cadmium intoxication.

However, all of the above reasons are rather "auxiliary." The main reason was and remains aging. Age-related changes in the body can provoke cancer. And most importantly, the initial symptoms almost never suspect cancer in the early stages.

Frequent urination may be one of the signs of prostate cancer. Moreover, both day and night. The stream of urine becomes more impetuous and inconstant. After urination often remains a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder, discomfort and pain in the perineum. It can also be observed erectile dysfunction, the appearance of blood in the composition of urine and sperm. The problem is that the first signs of the disease are very similar to other diseases of the prostate gland and the genitourinary system in general.

Service for Foreign Patients at Seoul University Hospital (SNUH)

It often happens that patients turn to a specialist only in the later stages. As the disease progresses and metastatic lesions occur, the symptoms become more pronounced:

severe pain in the pelvis, spine and thighs;

constant discomfort in the chest;

prolonged urinary retention;

rapid weight loss;

general weakness, pale skin and even its gray tint.

In order to accurately diagnose prostate cancer, a number of events are being held on the basis of Seoul National University Hospital:

sonography (ultrasound) of the prostate;

three-dimensional computed tomography;

combined CT / AET;

osteoscintigraphy;

a number of lab tests and tissue biopsy.

Only after a comprehensive diagnosis of each patient individually selected treatment program.

Prostate Cancer Treatment at Seoul National University Hospital

The leading specialist in the treatment of prostate cancer at the Hospital is Kwak Cheol. He specializes in the surgical treatment of prostate and kidney cancer, as well as a number of other urological tumors.

Kwak Cheol practices minimally invasive surgical techniques using laparoscopy and the use of robotic technology to improve the accuracy of all manipulations.

One of the main types of treatment is the removal of the prostate gland, with which the seminal vesicles and the affected regional lymph nodes are removed. Minimally invasive methods allow not to cause serious damage to healthy tissues, speed up the recovery and ensure a high cosmetic result (there are no large scars and scars, like after a classical operation).



The following can be used as auxiliary treatment methods:

radiation therapy;

brachytherapy;

chemotherapy;

hormone therapy;

laser therapy;

ultrasound ablation and so on.

These treatment methods can be combined with each other depending on the stage of the disease, the presence of metastases, the size of the tumor, its position and a number of other individual characteristics in a particular case.

Timely diagnosis and treatment allows the person to return to normal life and restore his health. But for this, it is recommended for men after 40 years to undergo regular check-ups and other examinations. Especially those who have a hereditary or other predisposition. And in the case of the first signs of illness, the doors of the National Seoul University Hospital are open to patients.
