Innovative Procedures

  • Sperm head shaped Neobladder was designed and developed at Cancer Institute. It is the routine neobladder reconstruction done after radical cystectomy for carcinoma bladder.
  • Urethral Suture Technique : A simple new and safer technique to take urethral sutures for neobladder reconstruction and radical prostatectomy was developed in cancer institute Adyar.
  • Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy for Carcinoma Penis : One of the few centres practising sentinel node biopsy for clinically node negative patients. This procedure leads to dramatic decrease in the incidence of would and limb complications associated with an inguinal lymph node dissection. The identification rate and negative predictive value is comparable with that published in world literature.
  • Nerve sparing RPLND in Post Chemotehrapy Setting : For limited small volume disease on the contralateral side the nerves are preserved. Preservation of nerves results in increased incidence of anterograde ejaculation. Patients have even fathered children with this technique.
