Main aims of our research that will be further detailed (below) are:

Minimize morbidity, and especially, rate of anastomotic leakage that have a negative impact
on survival. This will imply continual improvement of the surgical technique, including implementation of robotic assisted resection

Explore for biomarkers based on biobank material, aiming at early detection of cancer and being able to monitor effect of treatment and early discovery of recurrent disease.
