    Frequently Asked Questions

    Robotic surgery is an ultra-modern minutely invasive surgery in which a robot controlled by AI assists the surgeons to perform specific delicate procedures. The da Vinci Surgical System is a prime example of robotic surgery. It provides the surgeon with better perception and precise control over the surgery. The patient may require specific supplemental remedies. But the recovery in robotic surgery is considerably faster.

    Accomplished surgeons such as Dr Praveen Kammar implement robotic surgery in various cancers like liver cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer, gynaecological cancer, etc. There are various inherent benefits to robotic cancer surgery in India, such as lesser pain and scarring due to smaller incision, lower blood loss and infection risk, and faster recovery rate. You can consult with Dr Praveen for more information.

    Cancer is one of the most complicated diseases in the world. Patients with almost every kind of cancer can be treated via robotic surgery. But not every patient is the right candidate for it due to several different reasons. It is vital to ask your oncologist questions about it, such as the following:

    • Am I the right candidate for robotic surgery?
    • What are the benefits of robotic surgery over the conventional one?
    • What is the duration of this procedure?
    • Would I need to be anaesthetized for robotic surgery?
    • Would there be any blood loss?
    • What are the plausible risks and side effects associated with it?

    You should have specific questions about any medical procedure before it starts because it helps the patient and the doctor choose the proper treatment. Every surgical oncologist before any robotic cancer surgery in India encourages you to ask these questions before the treatment.

    Almost every robotic surgery for cancer in India uses a da Vinci surgical system. It has been designed as an efficient system with a convenient seating position for the surgeon. The da Vinci surgical system comprises three components: surgeon console, patient cart and vision cart. The patient's anatomy can be viewed through a magnified image on a high-definition 3D display, with the surgeon's hands and eyes in coordination with the robotic instruments. It improves the surgeon's vision and perception to examine and carefully work on the areas that are hard to see through the naked eyes. Motions and dexterity are increased significantly. It provides a higher level of precision to make sure the healthy tissues are not disturbed.

    The surgical oncologist inserts the instruments inside the patient via a few small incisions. Then a high definition camera is also inserted to make everything visible outside. The surgeon then uses hand-eye coordinated instruments to perform the surgery. Every precise movement of the robot and the instruments correlates with the surgeon's hands and eyes.

    It is highly improbable that you would be discharged from the hospital the same day after going through robotic cancer surgery. So it is imperative to talk with your medical team about the duration of your stay and the Dos and Don'ts after the surgery. Because it is a surgical procedure, it is very important to wear loose clothes to give your wound room to breathe.

    Things to make sure of:

    • Consult your medical team about the precautions to take before the surgery. For example, "What to drink and eat before the surgery?" or "Do I have to come on an empty stomach?".
    • Ensure that you have acquired all the medical supplies for recovery at home, including bandages and medicines.
    • Enquire about the dietary restrictions and precautions for the best and fastest recovery.
    • As with any surgery for any disease or medical condition, you will have some side effects. So it is crucial to look out for these side effects or call a doctor in case of anything severe.

    Every expert, including Dr Praveen Kammar, in the field of robotic surgery for cancer in India, suggests that, as with any surgery, the patient should not become complacent after the procedure. So as suggested before, ask the doctors all the necessary questions to keep yourself healthy.

    Everyone around the world knows that cancer is a highly complex disease. That's why, even though robotic surgery is supposed to reduce the side effects, the patient will experience a few of them. Side effects depend upon the type of cancer, a patient's overall health, their routine, any prior medications etc. including,

    • Regurgitation and difficulty swallowing.
    • Loss of appetite.
    • Pain and bleeding.
    • Fatigue.
    • Infection.

    As mentioned above, side effects depend upon several factors. They may vary from patient to patient. So it is imperative to alert your medical team about anything unusual. Dr Praveen Kammar and his team of experts operate with multidisciplinary caregivers to help the patient post-procedure. These caregivers help the patients with dietary management, pain management and sometimes even spiritual care.
