The department can deal with common tumors, including gastrointestinal tumors, mammary gland tumors, thyroid tumors and hepatobiliary and pancreatic tumors.
Director of the department, Pro. Wu Aiguo, has worked in Surgery Department in famous affiliated hospital of medical college for many years and has been awarded “Famous Doctor of Ling Nan” and “Good Doctor of Guangzhou”. He’s a veteran in handling gastric tumors, colorectal tumors, retroperitoneal neoplasms, mammary gland tumors and thyroid tumors, particularly in low anterior resection for low rectal cancer, breast-conserving therapy(BCT), reoperation for recurrent tumor and surgery for the elder.
Under the leadership of Pro. Wu, the surgery team has led the way in standardized and personalized treatment and conducted minimally invasive surgery for various tumors of the stomach, intestinal tract and hepatobiliary tract, pancreatic tumor surgery, breast tumor surgery and thyroid tumor surgery as well as multidisciplinary consultation for recurrent and complicated cases.

Now, the unit is staffed with 2 chief physicians(one is doctoral supervisor, the other is doctor), 3 attending doctors and 2 resident doctors(one of them is doctor, and 2 are master).
The unit has formulated an established and advanced system targeted at benign and malignant abdominal tumors, including minimally invasive surgery, open surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunobiological therapy, interventional radiotherapy and TCM combined with Western Medicine.
1.Standardized diagnosis and treatment: Standardized radical treatment of gastrointestinal tumors, for example treatment of gastric cancer and colorectal cancer, complete circumferential mesorectal excision (CCME) and Ultra-low anterior resection for low rectal cancer, has stayed abreast of top-notch facilities at home and abroad.
2.Maximum efficacy: Under the leadership of two professors, the unit has probed into the innovation of procedures that have considerably brought down recurrence rate and elevated 5-year survival rate.
3.Three-dimentional multidisciplinary collaboration: The unit strives to offer more comprehensive and evidence-based treatment plan for patients through a multidisciplinary consultation conducted by top domestic expert.
Palliative Care Center is the largest supportive care provider in South China with 120 beds specifically designed to alleviate tumor patients’ suffering. There are 30m2-60m2 independent suites and some of these suites are outfitted with detached guest rooms to facilitate their families’ daily life. Besides, the Center also has close connection with Sun Yat-sen University, which makes quick and bilateral referral or consultation more convenient.

Minimally invasive technique is applied to every kind of malignant solid tumors and displays an obvious advantage in treating middle and late stage cancers. It has become a major option for its precise efficacy, minor side effect, fast recovery and better prognosis.
Minimally invasive treatment is carried out in a systematic way in Royallee Cancer Center. There are 31 inpatient wards specifically designed for patients who go for minimally invasive procedures. And they will undergo necessary workup like Digital Subtraction Angiography( DSA manufactured by Siemens), 128-slice Computed Tomography(128-slice CT manufactured by General Electrics) and 16-slice Electroconvulsive Therapy(ECT). Moreover, a wide range of minimally invasive procedures are conducted to deliver tumor precision treatment, for example, intravascular intervention, intravascular intervention of radioactive Iridium-90, Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy, Microwave Ablation, Cryoablation, Irreversible Electroporation Ablation(IRE), Radioactive Particle Implantation and Photodynamic Therapy.
Minimally invasive treatment team led by Dr. Xie Qiang will uphold “patient-centered” and “efficacy-oriented” principle to offer professional and premium medical service.
Common Minimally Invasive Techniques
Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy works by high temperature. During the procedure, heat energy is generated in the foci with a alternating-current field produced by radiofrequency and it creates high temperature to cause coagulative necrosis of tumor tissue. The procedure can eliminate the tumor tissue to the maximum extent, meanwhile, damage to surrounding normal tissue is precisely under control. Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy applies to benign and malignant solid tumors, mostly liver tumors, lung tumors and breast tumors in clinical practice. And the therapy is hopefully suitable for primary tumors, metastatic tumors, inoperable late stage tumors, tumors that can’t be removed completely in the surgery and patients unfit for radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Microwave Ablation, also known as Thermal Ablation, works by heating tumor tissue to caogulation, dehydration and necrosis. At the same time, necrotized tumor tissue produces heat shock proteins that stimulate immune system and improve immunity. The therapy applies to all kinds of malignant solid tumors, usually liver tumors, lung tumors, breast tumors and pancreas tumors. It is also combined with other therapies, Transarterial Chemoembolization(TACE) for instance, to augment control over post-operative tumors and expand its indications.
Radioactive Particle Implantation
Radioactive Particle Implantation falls within the scope of brachytherapy. It works by implanting radioactive I125 that kills tumor cells with emission of Gamma Ray into the tumor. The therapy may cause minor damage to surrounding normal tissue, but usually the damage will not be systemic. Solid tumors found on human body, such as lung tumors, liver tumors, osseous tumors, cerebral tumors, pancreas tumors, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, pelvic tumors, metastatic tumors, head and neck tumors, prostate tumors, kidney and adrenal tumors and soft tissue sarcoma, are indications for radioactive particle implantation.
Technical Competitiveness of Minimally Invasive Treatment
Minimally Invasive Treatment kills tumors by delivering precise blow to the tumor with the guidance of imaging equipment(DSA, Fluoroscopic Machine, CT, MR and Ultrasound)through vascular and skin puncture or human duct system. It is competitive for:
1.Precision , small trauma: precise blow to the tumor foci with no harm to surrounding normal tissue. And the outcome is comparable with open surgery.
2.Definite efficacy and shrinking the tumor: tumor cells decay, necrotize, and are absorbed when the procedure is done. It also helps to shrink large tumors for further surgical resection.
3.Highly targeted, low recurrence: in intervention treatment, local chemotherapy drugs are dozens of times more concentrated than systemic chemotherapy. Moreover, chemoembolization blocks blood supply for the tumor, boosting treatment effect and lowering toxicity. Precise imaging, location and treatment cause minor damage to normal tissue and lowers recurrence rate.
4.Slight side effect, high repeatability: total dosage is small, but the local drug concentration is high, which improves the efficacy and has less side effects; patients feel less painful with a tiny skin incision and the high repeatability is more friendly than conventional surgery in the case of recurrence.
5. Safe, reliable and affordable: widely applicable. A good choice for the elder, the weak and those intolerant of conventional surgeries because it doesn’t require general anesthesia. The charge is relatively low.
Whole-process Healthcare Management
Featured with an integration of health checkup and healthcare management, the center strives to be a whole process health butler for clients by formulating customized packages preceding physical examination, accompanying clients to every spot during physical examination, scheduling follow-up visit after physical examination and offering multidisciplinary analysis on health report. Here, clients are accessible to green passage for consultation service from domestic leading experts.
Stay-in Physical Examination
Clients have access to fave-star independent suites ranging from 30m2 to 600 m2. Their accommodation, dining, testing, report analysis and quick referral will be taken care of by a personal butler.
Genetic diseases are caused by disease-causing mutations in genes, and most diseases have serious consequences. Studies have found that each person carries an average of 2.8 genes for recessive genetic diseases, which are undetectable by conventional medical examinations. Through risk gene screening, potential lesions can be detected as early as possible, and early screening, diagnosis and treatment can be truly achieved through the optimization of living environment and lifestyle habits.
