Robotic GI cancer surgeries
For both gastro-intestinal and digestive diseases, minimally invasive robotic surgery has been the benchmark of treatment procedures. Our multidisplinary team of gastro intestinal surgical oncologists and colorectal surgeons are of high calibre in the domain of treatment.
Why choose Manipal Hospitals
Perfectly harnessing the advanced robotic technology to the best of our ability, our team of gastroenterologists and onco surgeons is adept at handling the most challenging of gastrointestinal surgeries. Our multidisciplinary Tumour Board follows a strict treatment protocol to enable the best outcomes with the patient’s comfort a priority.
Solutions of robotic GI cancer surgeries
The dexterity of the robotic arms allows the surgeon to view the deepest parts of the uterus and cervix to manoeuvre the instruments to cut away the targeted tumour. The robotic arms are able to do a 360 degree turn which helps surgeons twist and turn the instruments to the best benefit. With less pain, no scars because of the minute keyhole incisions, short recovery time compared to open surgery, the robotic surgery helps women get back to their normal routine faster.
Complexities of robotic surgery
While the risks posed are not more than in an open surgery, it comes with a few risks such as potential infection and bleeding from incision site, reactions to anaesthesia due to prolonged surgery.
Number of cases
We have successfully performed over 6 lakh robot assisted surgeries to treat uterine and cervical cancers.
Infection control protocol
Patient safety and comfort is our priority and we ensure that our patients are protected from any infection. As one of the best quaternary care hospitals in the world, each patient is worthy of our premium care and treated with concern.
