As a leading cancer treatment provider, Fortis strives to provide patients with innovative and advanced treatment options. Our surgeons combine the expertise of their skilled surgeons with state-of-the-art robot technology to provide robotic-assisted general oncology surgery. There are some types of cancers that cannot be treated with traditional open surgery. During robotic surgery, specially trained surgeons use tiny surgical tools and a computer console to remove cancer from a patient.

During cancer surgery, the primary goal of surgeons is to deliver the most effective treatment for the patient's specific type and stage of cancer, while ensuring a smooth and speedy recovery. It is crucial to consider the patient's prognosis and consider the appropriate surgical goals accordingly.

Surgery may be performed for various reasons, depending on the individual's specific situation:

Curative Surgery: The primary goal is to completely remove the cancerous tumor with the intention of achieving a cure.

Neoadjuvant Surgery: Surgery is performed before other treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy to reduce the size of the tumor, making subsequent treatments more effective.

Palliative Surgery: The aim is to alleviate symptoms, such as pain, or to restore function and improve the patient's quality of life.

Robotic surgery can be considered as an option depending on the type of cancer. In certain cases, robotic surgery may be recommended as an alternative to open surgery, offering potential advantages. Your treating doctor’s team will assess your specific condition and recommend the most suitable treatment approach, including robotic surgery if appropriate.

  • Benefits of Robot Assisted Surgery

    • 4 or 5 small incisions of about 7mm instead of long incision (cut) reaching above the naval
    • Blood loss is significantly reduced compared to open surgery thus reducing the need for blood transfusion
    • Significantly less pain reducing the requirement of analgesics (pain killers)
    • Usually, oral feeds are started on the same day
    • Quick recovery
    • Shorter hospital stays of about one day
    • Early return to work in around two weeks
    • These benefits provide added advantage to the obese and diabetic patients and those with other comorbid conditions where wound complications of long incision (cut) can be avoided
