Robotic Neck Dissection
Robotic surgery is revolutionising neck dissection or neck lymph node removal that is an essential part of oral and tongue cancer surgery. Neck dissection can be performed by conventional open method or by laparoscopy or Robotically (Minimally Invassive Neck Dissection-MIND). Robotic & Laproscopic cancer surgery has several advantages over conventional open surgery with same cure rate. Only surgery is curative in most of oral and tongue cancers. Additional therapies (chemotherapy & radiotherapy) are mostly supportive. This technique developed by Dr Sandeep Nayak has helped many patients in pain-free quick recovery and scar-free life. When we perform robotic neck node dissection the most of the time patients are discharged on 2nd or 3rd day after surgery which is less than half the time compared to open surgery.
