Laparoscopic Surgery for Cancer of Cardia

suelocust Member Posts: 4

My dad (76 years old) was recently diagnosed with cancer on Cardia (adenocarcinoma).  The tumor is pretty big (4-5 cm) and invaded all layer of stomach, and is classified as T4N1Mx.  

My dad is currently under chemo to see if the tumor can be shrunk and see if surgery is possible.

I am wondering if Laparoscopic Surgery is possible in this case.

Thank you!
