da Vinci Surgical System

Minimally invasive surgery is the technique of accomplishing surgical procedures through small keyhole incisions. Without a large abdominal incision, patients recover with less pain and a shorter hospital stay. They also return to work and exercise more quickly, with the potential for fewer complications.

da Vinci surgery is the latest advance in minimally invasive surgery. The da Vinci system brings conventional laparoscopy into the 21st century. With the ability to perform complex operations through keyhole incisions, previously unachievable results and short hospital stays are now available for many more patients. More >>
Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy is  used to treat the cancerous disease. Treatment consists of one or more drugs that work together to disrupt the cancer cells' ability to grow and multiply. The choice of drugs used will depend on the type and location of the cancer, its stage of development, and the general health of the patient. Your nurse will spend time with you to explain the side effects and mechanics of the chemotherapy. More>>
Laser Treatment For Condyloma
Another method of treatment for HPV is laser surgery, which is generally performed in Dr. Tunca's office. This procedure " evaporates" wart tissue via carbon dioxide laser. During laser surgery, the beam is directed by the surgeon while he views the area to be treated through a microscope. More >>
Surgical Treatment and Postoperative Care
After your initial diagnosis, surgical treatment is usually necessary to remove the cancer. Dr. Tunca will discuss the surgical procedure at length with you, but you can expect the following to occur; our office will schedule the surgery and the hospital will contact you in regard to pre-admission testing, i.e. EKG, chest x-ray, blood work, and urine testing. The day prior to surgery, you will follow a clear liquid diet in preparation for cleansing the bowel. Dr. Tunca will arrange to have you supplied with a bowel evacuation kit,  and you will be given instructions by the nursing staff. More>>
