The Robotic Surgical Program at Nanavati Max Super Speciality Hospital offers a wide range of oncological procedures with the expertise of experienced robotically-skilled surgeons. The program is supported by multidisciplinary teams offering advanced robotic surgery treatment for adult and paediatric patients suffering from cancer.
Robotic Surgery has become a new standard of care for many oncological (cancer) specialties including head and neck, thorax and lung, thyroid, gynaecological, gastrointestinal and urological cancers. Our team of internationally-trained oncologists offers an integrated robotics program to deal with complex oncological cases through small incisions with the advantages of enhanced 3-dimensional vision, combined with the precision, dexterity and control of the robotic platform
Robotic Surgery is a type of minimally-invasive (small incision) surgery that allows surgeons to perform complex operations with high precision and improved outcomes. The surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in surgical procedures. The surgeon sits at a console and controls instruments within the patients’ body with his/her wrist movements.
Some of the major benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:
Cancer can affect any part of the tissues, organs, and structures in the body. The treatment varies for different types of cancer and some cases require surgery as a treatment option.
Nanavati Max Cancer Centre is equipped with latest Robotic system and facilities, thus offering comprehensive care to a patient suffering from cancer. The advanced technology of the Da Vinci Xi System facilitates our expert surgeons to tackle the most complex cases of malignancy with effectiveness and also provides rapid and faster recovery with better aesthetic outcomes and minimum scarring. The department offers highly advanced Robotic programs including:
Head and Neck Cancer Surgical Program
The program helps to treat various head and neck cancers such as Thyroid Cancers, Oropharyngeal Cancers (base of the tongue, tonsils etc.), Cancers of the Larynx (voice box) and Cancers of Salivary Glands, among others.
Thorax and Lung Cancer Surgical Program
The various surgeries performed under this program including Robotic-assisted Thoracic Surgery (RATS) like lobectomy, pneumonectomy, lung cancer resection, thymectomy and esophagectomy.
Thyroid Cancer Surgical Program
Complex thyroid cancer surgery can be performed using the robotic platform.
Gynae-Oncology Surgical Program
For women diagnosed with gynaecological cancer like endometrial cancer, ovarian cancers, and cervical Cancer, we at Nanavati Max Cancer Centre offer gynaecological oncology services including robotic procedures like Myomectomies, Hysterectomies, and lymphadenectomy.
Gastrointestinal Cancer Surgical Program
The gastrointestinal oncology team at Nanavati Max Cancer Centre deals with a range of surgeries including radical pancreatic surgeries, colectomies, gastric and liver resections, etc. for common GI malignancies. These surgeries can be performed with the robotic approach as well.
Urological Cancer Surgical Program
Urologic oncology has been at the forefront of robotic surgery since the beginning. Today, Prostate, Kidney and Urinary Bladder cancer can all be tackled robotically and are associated with improved perioperative outcomes with no compromise in cancer cure. The slender, wristed instruments and magnified view of the robot allow excellent access to urologic organs which are difficult to reach with open or laparoscopic techniques.
