How Effective Is Robotic Surgery In Gynecological Cancer?
Cancer is the uncontrolled mitosis of body cells. The abnormal division can be associated with single or multiple areas of the body. In a normal case scenario, the old cells should die and get replaced by newly formed cells, however, this is not the case with cancer as old cells survive and new cells continue to form leading to tumors. The robotic surgery specialists in India say that a cancerous tumor is malignant, which affect different parts of the body.
There is an increase in the occurrence of gynecological cancer, which is a matter of great stress for the patient and her family. In normal cancer treatment, the robotic surgery hospital in Mumbai involve three major steps,
1. Firstly, the surgical removal of gynecological cancer,
2. Secondly, chemotherapy,
3. Thirdly, radiation
We at Nanavati Hospitals provide you the best robotic treatment with our surgeons and specialized team of medical professionals who are involved in figuring out best treatment methodology for every patient to make it least invasive for them. When a gynecological cancer is detected our team of doctors, nurses, radiologists, and other staff will work to chalk out the best treatment plan specially designed according to your case and needs. In need of surgery, our surgeons rely on the latest technology; da Vinci Surgical System to perform the lacroscopic removal of the malignant gynecological tumors present in the body.
There are several different types of gynecological cancer such as cervical, ovarian, uterine, gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD), primary peritoneal, vulvar and vaginal cancers. The uncontrolled division and growth of cells originate in the reproductive system.
For a uterine (endometrial) cancer after the diagnosis, the gynecological oncologist might recommend a cancer robotic surgery. A robotic-assisted total lacroscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy might be performed by our oncologists which is a minimally invasive procedure used for the removal of uterus and observation of the surrounding tissues and organs for the spread of cancer. After which the doctors might want to examine the surrounding lymph nodes aids the surgeons by providing them with the real-time, accurate information that may affect the surgery and treatment plan.
In cervical cancer, soon after the diagnosis, the gynecological oncologist can recommend surgery as per the case. Similar to uterine cancer, our oncologists might follow the similar ontological approach for removal of the uterus and cervix and examination of the remaining tissues for the prevalence of cancerous cells. The lymph nodes will be examined as well to get accuracy in the time and areas which might affect the surgery.
In case of ovarian cysts, the gynecological oncologist can perform a minimally invasive procedure ovarian cystectomy or salphingo oophorectomy (it is also helpful as a preventive step for the occurrence of cancer in women who are at risk of developing it) using a robot.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of using minimally invasive procedures for gynecological cancers:
1. It helps in the faster recovery of the patient.
2. Since it is minimally invasive the pain associated with it is very less.
3. A very small incision is made in the body.
4. The patient can get busy in her normal life in a few days post-surgery.
5. The patient is left for shorter hospital stays.
6. There is a suitably low risk of getting infections.
A Robotic-assisted radical total lacroscopic hysterectomy usually involves one to three hours under general anesthesia. Our patients are hospitalized at least for one night so that the healing process can be monitored. Post surgery, we allow the patient to return to normal life within a week, but they have to be in touch with the gynecological oncologist for some time post surgery. We ask our patients to stick to a healthy lifestyle by transforming their diet, sleeping patterns and involving work which requires the least amount of stress.
Our surgeons are dedicated to providing the best treatment for you which is safe, effective and has the least amount of risks associated with it.
