Robotic Cancer Surgery
Robotic surgery, allows surgeons to perform many types of cancer procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. It is actually a minimally invasive surgery — procedures performed through tiny incisions.
The advantages include increased precision, visibility and ease for the surgeon. Thus complex surgeries can now be done with more ease. Patients’ post operative recovery is excellent as normal tissue damage is negligible, and they can go home earlier at many instances. The scars are very tiny and thus there is very little pain.
Robotic colorectal surgery with the Da Vinci® robot, helps in surgery for colon and rectal cancer with fine precision, 3D vision and magnified view. It is fast becoming the method of choice for operating on patients with Rectal and Colonic Cancer as well as complex pelvic malignancies.
