Robotic Head and Neck surgery in delhi | Trans oral robotic- Dr. Saurabh Gupta

Oncology treatment inevitably demands person specific approach, which is why the credibility of the Dr is imperative in deciding the Mode of Operation from among the Standard Operating Procedures. Having procured the perfect expertise and honing his experience over the years Dr Saurabh Gupta has indeed become the best doctor for oral cancer in Delhi – a name that is reassuring to patients.

Trans-oral Robotic Surgery

Trans-oral Robotic Surgery refers to the modern innovative approach to cancer treatment of which transition is carried via mouth passage; it involves removal of the tumour with the assistance of a surgical robot, a process less invasive and with high success rate. It was clinically introduced in 2005, in otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery. It was then when the first TORS resections of the base of tongue neoplasms were accounted. The surgery is currently aligns primarily with the Industrial guidance. In an assessment carried out on Supraglottic Partial Laryngectomy for 120 minutes, no such cases of post-operational complications or surgical mortality were cited.
In the trans oral robotic surgery in Delhi the procedure is commenced under the guidance of a surgeon, a surgical robot is made to look into the oral cavity of the patient with no or minimal incisions through the organs like lip, neck or chin which is very less likely in cases of traditional cancer surgeries. Though involvement of Robotics only requires a small incision, the patient will still need to be put on anaesthesia.
The current facilities ensured by this method are:
•    Enhanced, 3 D and High Definition visualization inside the human body.
•    Manual Dexterity, control, and precision.
Also, as an alternative to a TORS procedure, an equally efficient oral oncosurgery procedure, the Transoral Laser Microsurgery (TLM) is used for the same sets of indications of oral cancer.
The patient is facilitated to the bedside and a retractor is employed to open the mouth and keep it in a stable opened position for the operation. The camera is guided into the patient’s mouth thus enabling a high definition view of the patient’s throat and insides. The robotic instrument thus performs the surgery with control lying in the hands of the surgeon. There’s been quite an improve in survival rate of oral cancer patients after implementation of facilities to tend to Trans oral Robotic Surgery in Delhi; though as of now, it’s available in selected locations only having come this far from the state of being developed since 2011 the future of Trans oral Robotic Surgery in Delhi to eradicate loss of life over oral cancer and thyroid certainly looks hopeful and attainable goal.

 

Trans-oral Robotic Surgery

Battling cancers in millennial times is a very probable yet one of the toughest affairs. Throat cancer is one such epidemic which can affect a one many organs including head and neck. The patients are advised treatment by their oncologists based on the location, stage, and size of the tumour.
The surgeries are broadly classified into:
•    Open surgery via a large incision which is almost obsolete in today’s time.
•    Robotic Head and Neck Surgery via Minimal Incision.
Robotic surgery is a major breakthrough development in the recent times used first for tongue neoplasms.  Recently, there been facilities to incorporate Robotic Head and Neck Surgery in Delhi instead of the complex alternative open surgery that also leaves huge scars on operated area. The surgery is currently not standardized but aligns primarily with the Industrial guidance.
The current facilities that makes this method a move evolved and effective one to ensure better results are:
•    Enhanced, 3 D and High Definition visualization inside the human body.
•    Manual Dexterity, control, and precision.
•    A virtual platform for carrying out the surgery.
•    It aids in carrying out the surgery via the oral channel.
•    Early or Moderate (T1 or T2) Cancer treatments.
•    Access to complex anatomy oropharynx, parapharyngeal space, larynx, hypopharynx, skull base, thyroid, and neck.
This minimally invasive surgery is helping around 3 million all around the world. Contemporarily in India, by the virtue of the Robotic Head and Neck Surgery in Delhi, your surgeon can keep track of the robotic surgical devices installed inside your body.

 

Trans-oral Robotic Surgery

It’s very trivial in today’s times to see thyroid malfunctioning issues among the middle aged. One such disorder named as hypothyroid is a caused side effect of radiation treatment of Thyroid cancer. Thyroid releases the hormones that are source to many functions including metabolism. When the thyroid cells start mutating and multiplying abnormally, a tumour is formed.
The procedures employed for Thyroid and Neck Cancer treatment in Delhi is combinatorial of one and multiple methods depending on the stage of the cancer.
The Surgeries possible
Lobectomy: This method requires removing the thyroid glands’ lobes with tumour affected nodules.
Thyroidectomy: This method requires removing the whole or parts of the gland depending on the size of cancer.

Robotic Thyroidectomy- Like other Robotic Cancer treatments, Robotic Thyroidectomy too facilitates the surgery with no neck incisions (cuts), instead there is a 5-7 cm deep hidden cut beneath the arms. A Small slit is made near the base of the neck to provide accessibility to patient’s throat and proceed with the operation. In Endoscopic Thyroidectomy, a scope and camera devices are used.
Other Treatment Methods are Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy and Targeted Therapy. Radiation therapy is practiced when cancer has spread to trachea, voice box and oesophagus.
Medication prescribed by an oncologist can be used to treat the cancerous cells. It terminates the cell’s ability to grow and divide. Targeted therapy treatment focuses on blocking the environment of growth of cancerous cells by taking into account on specific genes and proteins.
Recurrent and Remission Cancer are treated with the above mentioned therapies and support services respectively. Thus the Thyroid and Neck Cancer treatment should be availed at the early stages.
