Excellence Center for Colorectal Cancer

King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital

Discovering new treatment methods as well as nationally and internationally recognized for excellent new medical equipment.

Professor  Dr. Chucheep Sahakijrungruang was the key person who initiated the Excellence Center for Colorectal Cancer under the supervision of the colorectal surgery unit, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital. Operating only for a short period, though, the Excellence Center for Colorectal Cancer has succeeded in discovering new treatment methods and has been nationally and internationally recognized for excellent new medical equipment. The multidisciplinary team are joint partners among the team of radiologists and oncologists.

The most outstanding and recognized quality of the center is its world class medical techniques and its one stop service medical treatment, providing a rapid diagnosis of colonoscopy where there is the risk of a tumor. For cases in need of medical treatment, the Laparoscopic surgery is quickly carried out. And if a surgery is needed, the patients can undergo  minimally invasive surgery for a quick recovery and less injury. A close collaboration among experts such as radiologists and oncologists are co-working in the integrated multidisciplinary work.

Currently, the Excellence Center for Colorectal Cancer has been significantly improved and developed in its research works, personnel development and the people’s awareness of colorectal cancer prevention.
