What types of cancer surgeries can be performed using robotic technology?
Robotic technology can be used for various cancer surgeries, including but not limited to:
- Prostate cancer surgery: Robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy is a common procedure performed using robotic technology.
- Gynecologic cancer surgery: Robotic-assisted procedures for ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers, such as hysterectomy and lymph node dissection, can be performed.
- Colorectal cancer surgery: Robotic-assisted colectomy, rectal resection, and lymph node dissection are among the procedures used for colorectal cancer treatment.
- Head and neck cancer surgery: Some complex procedures for head and neck cancers, such as robotic-assisted throat or tongue cancer surgery, can be performed robotically.
- Lung cancer surgery: Robotic-assisted lobectomy or segmentectomy may be utilized for lung cancer treatment in certain cases.
How does robotic oncologic surgery work?
Robotic oncologic surgery utilizes a robotic surgical system that consists of robotic arms equipped with specialized surgical instruments. The surgeon controls the robot from a console, where they can view a high-definition, 3D image of the surgical site. The surgeon's hand movements are translated into precise movements of the robotic arms, enabling them to perform complex oncologic surgeries with enhanced precision.
