Thymoma Treatment

Thymoma Navigating Diagnosis and Treatment Options

Thymoma is a type of tumour that develops in the thymus gland, which is located in the chest. 

The most effective treatment for Thymoma is to surgically remove the tumour along with the thymus gland. This offers the best chance for a cure. If the tumour is contained within the thymus gland, it is usually possible to remove the entire tumour.

However, in some cases, the tumour may spread into nearby structures. During surgery, the full extent of the tumour can be accurately assessed. Depending on the size of the tumour and whether it has invaded nearby structures like the lining of the heart, the chest wall, or nearby blood vessels, different surgical methods may be used to remove the tumour.

It’s important to note that the specific treatment approach may vary depending on the individual case. It’s always best to consult with a healthcare professional who can provide personalised information and guidance based on the specific situation of the patient.

care that extends beyond the operating room

Robotic Surgery for Thymoma

Robotic surgery for Thymoma is a minimally invasive approach that offers the benefits of a transsternal (through the breastbone) procedure without the associated trauma.

During Robotic Thymectomy, the surgeon operates using small instruments with flexible joints while sitting at a console. They have a high-resolution, three-dimensional view of the thymus gland, allowing for precise and delicate removal. This visual guidance helps the surgeon avoid cutting nearby important structures and ensures complete removal of the thymic horns, which extend into the neck.

The combination of a surgeon-controlled camera, enhanced image clarity, and dexterity of the robotic instruments allows for safe and precise thymectomy, even in tight spaces. It’s important to note that not all thymomas are suitable for robotic surgery. Factors such as tumor size, invasiveness, and the surgeon’s experience play a role. Dr. Pallavi Purwar, with her extensive experience has wide spread experience in this procedure in the country.
