An esophagectomy with three-field lymph node dissection has been performed widely in Japan, but multidisciplinary therapy that uses a combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy is necessary to improve the prognosis in patients with advanced esophageal cancer. Several new techniques have contributed to reducing post-operative complications and we have introduced some techniques into the treatment of esophageal cancer at our hospital.
