Doctors use 3D endoscopy surgery

Hue Central Hospital has succeeded in conducting the first surgery in Viet Nam to remove a cancerous stomach tumour using 3D endoscopy surgery on Tuesday in the central city of Hue. The surgery lasted one hour.

The 50-year-old patient is Bui Van S, from the central province of Quang Nam's Nui Thanh District, who was in the third stage of stomach cancer.

According to Pham Nhu Hiep, the doctor who carried out the surgery, 3D endoscopy shortens and increases the effectiveness of the surgery as it supplies higher quality images than the normal endoscopy technique.
