New Podcast – Surgery & Neuroendocrine Cancer

May 12, 2022

Welcome to this month’s ‘Not Just NE Cancer’ series!

Real life experiences, practical advice and everything in between. Whether you are diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer or another rare or less common cancer, our podcast series cover topics from initial diagnosis, treatments and follow up, looking after your mental health and the professional perspectives from those involved in your care.

Hosted by Catherine Bouvier and produced by Neuroendocrine Cancer UK. We hope this series answers some of your questions or provides a source of support – or both, after all, this is not just NE cancer.

This week Cathy talks with Mr Andreas Prachalias, Liver Transplant & Hepatobiliary Surgeon at King’s College Hospital, London about Surgery and Neuroendocrine Cancer.

Topics include:

1- What is the role of the surgeon within an expert MDT?

2- If technically possible, what influences your decision to support surgical intervention?

3- What would influence you in reviewing a case for surgery when initially not a possibility?

4- When does impossible become a permanent decision?

5- Managing quality of life is of paramount importance, how do you manage expectations around the consequences of surgery?

6- Where does liver transplantation fit into the treatment spectrum for our community?

7- What is the sequence of surgical treatments when patients need liver surgery and heart surgery for carcinoid heart disease?
