Robotic Esophagectomy Surgery in Hyderabad
Robotic surgery for cancer esophagus is called robotic esophagectomy, which involves removing the food pipe which extends from mouth to stomach. With small incisions, the thoracic and abdominal part of the esophagus is completely mobilized, hence robotic-assisted surgery is now a common treatment modality for oesophageal cancer. It is associated with quick recovery and less pain compared to open surgery which is done via large incisions. The use of surgical robotic systems has many advantages over thoraco-laparoscopy for oesophagectomy. Robotic surgery provides high definition three-dimensional vision, better magnification, improved dexterity of instruments with better range of motion and hence lesser complications during the surgery which involves mobilization of the food pipe in the mediastinum, thorax and abdomen.
