Robotic Cancer Surgery
The Apollo Institutes of Robotic Surgery are committed to providing patients with an exceptional experience using cutting edge treatment options. Our state-of-the-art operating theatres are equipped with the da Vinci Si surgical system, the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. Robot-assisted surgery when indicated for oncology patients offers various unique advantages. The enhanced precision and control offered by the da Vinci system allows surgeons to perform delicate procedures like prostate surgery while preserving the nerve fibres and blood vessels attached to the gland. The enhanced vision of the surgical field offers surgeons the ability to clearly differentiate between tissue planes and effect precise tumour removal. The ability of the da Vinci system to scale the surgeon’s movement allows for better cancer clearance while preserving healthy tissue. The capabilities of the robot further come to the fore during reconstructive surgery following the removal of diseased tissue in cases of kidney cancers.
