Advanced Precision Surgery for Breast Lump Performed in Jammu: A New Hope for Patients

Last Updated on October 26, 2023 at 2:58 pm

Dr. Vikas Heer and Dr. Paras Khanna, leading Surgical oncologists associated with Aashnaa Oncology Association (AOA) performed an innovative and precise surgical procedure (Wire guided lumpectomy) for a 31 year old patient with occult breast lump at JK Medicity.

This patient from Jammu had previously undergone treatment for carcinoma in her left breast two years ago in which her entire left breast was removed (mastectomy). 

As part of her regular follow-ups, ultrasound of her right breast showed a suspicious lesion measuring 6mm. This lesion was not palpable clinically presenting a unique challenge as it was classified as an occult lesion. 

Dr. Heer explained that wire-guided lumpectomy is a globally recommended and precise surgical technique. Before the surgery Dr. Sohan Lal Sharma, senior consultant radiologist, carried out the wire localization of the tumor by expertly placing a medical grade thin wire in the tumor under ultrasound guidance. The wire guided lumpectomy specimen was subjected to mammography post surgery to verify complete removal of the wire localized tumor.

The patient was safely discharged on the same day, marking a swift recovery and attesting the excellence of the anaesthesia team led by Dr Jameel Hussain.

Dr. Vikas Heer, an accomplished surgical oncologist with training from the National Cancer Cancer South Korea and Tata Medical Centre is specifically trained in Breast and Gynae-oncology. He also noted that this surgical success marks the seventh case of its kind in the last year, underscoring AOA’s commitment to pioneering healthcare in the region.

Dr. Paras Khanna and Dr Gurpreet Kaur ,the founder of Aashna Oncology Association, expressed their satisfaction with the successful surgery.
