The world has witnessed a sea of change in the surgical world in the last decade. Cancer care has improved dramatically. We are now moving from a radical approach towards precision surgery, accurate surgery and Robotic cancer Surgery is a part of it.
Surgery is an important aspect of the treatment of solid cancers including Gastrointestinal cancers. Minimal access to cancer surgery has redefined the outcome of surgical procedures including major GI cancer surgery of the colon and rectum. Minimal access cancer surgery can be performed by a Robotic DaVinci system. Combining surgical skills with technology has wonderful results.
If we talk about Robotic Surgery and Gastrointestinal cancer, it is done only at a few limited centres. Robotic GI cancer surgery is safe. The combination of magnified stereoscopic 3 D vision and versatile Robotic endo wrist helps in minimal tissue handling, better control and tissue dissection with patient safety. Surgery is difficult and inaccessible areas happen with ease with the DaVinci robotic system especially in pelvic surgery, rectal cancer surgery.
No large incision, faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain, the reduced hospital stay is true for Robotic cancer surgery.
Robotic surgery also results in improved functions, both urinary and sexual functions. It offers better function preservation and nerve preservation, nerves supplying the vital pelvic organs, normally difficult to identify with naked eyes. Sexual function is important in young individuals, unfortunately, a less discussed and addressed issue, especially in females.
When a patient who has undergone a complex surgery like Robotic rectal cancer surgery, tells you that he/she has intact urinary bladder and sexual function in particular, as a Robotic surgeon you feels satisfied & happy. It makes your day.
