    Frequently Asked Questions

    Robotic surgery is an alternative to open surgery and laparoscopy. It offers greater control, precision, and vision to the surgeons. The surgery only takes a few tiny incisions, and the recovery is quick.

    The benefits of robotic surgery for a patient are:

    • Low complications and infections
    • Less pain and blood loss
    • Shorter hospital stays
    • Less scarring
    • Faster return to normal activities

    It is beneficial in treating cancers in the stomach, kidney, prostate, pancreas, liver, colon, and some forms of gynecologic cancers.

    To undergo robotic cancer surgery in Mumbai, you can schedule an appointment with Dr Praveen Kammar. He is an expert oncologist and has been working in the healthcare sector for over a decade. His expertise in treating different cancer forms have made him a renowned name in cancer treatment.

    Even though robotic surgery is used to treat different cancer forms, you may not be suitable for the surgery. To know about your suitability, you may ask various questions to your surgeon. The common questions that you can ask are:

    • What is the time required to undergo surgery?
    • Is there a need for blood transfusion?
    • Is there a requirement for anaesthesia?
    • What are the side effects of the surgery?
    • What are the risks associated with the surgery?
    • How is robotic surgery better than open surgery?
    • Is robotic surgery suitable to treat a specific cancer condition?

    These are the common questions you can ask about your surgery. If you have doubts and want to delve deep, you can ask your questions without hesitation. Asking questions will help you understand your medical condition and let you know what will work best.

    In da Vinci Surgery, a surgeon makes tiny incisions to insert miniature tools in the area to be operated. A camera is also inserted inside the patient through the incision, and it captures high-definition images of the surgical site. The images help the surgeon to have a look at the operation site and understand cancer's development.

    The surgeons sit at an ergonomically designed console and use the control below the viewer to move the instrument arms and camera. The surgeon's finger, wrist, and hand movements are translated or coded into the instrument, and it acts accordingly, mirroring the surgeon's movements. The da Vinci robotic surgery system does the translation of manual movements into instrumental movement.

    The advantages of da Vinci surgery are:

    • Increased range of motion
    • Precision in the surgery
    • Improved dexterity
    • Ability to protect the healthy tissues
    • Enhanced visualization and ability to reach far sites

    The control is in the hands of the surgeon during the procedure. It is essential to get the surgeon's input to handle the system. If you are looking for robotic surgery for cancer in Mumbai, you may contact Dr Praveen Kammar.

    You can expect an overnight stay in the hospital after surgery. Your care team can provide information about your stay in the hospital. You should carry loose-fitting clothes to the hospital.

    Some of the tips you can keep in mind are:

    • Follow directions: You can consult your care team to know the dos and don'ts after the surgery. They will help you understand what you can expect after the surgery. You can also ask them about the beverages and food you can have after surgery.
    • Get supplies: You can ask your care team about the medical supplies you will need after the surgery. You can buy bandages and gauze to help in the recovery.
    • Plan your meals: Ask the medical staff about any dietary restrictions after the surgery. You can stock your fridge with healthy fruits and vegetables before undergoing the procedure.
    • Monitor side effects: You should monitor the side effects and see their impact on your body. If they become severe, contact your medical care team.

    You should make necessary arrangements for your transportation while leaving the hospital. By keeping these points in your mind, you can ease your after-surgery care and take better care of yourself.

    Robotic surgery minimizes the side effects after surgery, but you may experience some side effects, which may include:

    • Pain
    • Bleeding
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Loss of appetite
    • Fatigue
    • Infection
    • Sexual side effects

    The side effects depend on your health condition, the type of cancer surgery, and the extent of the surgery. You should inform your medical care team about the side effects you may be experiencing after the surgery. The oncologists make sure to provide the required medical attention to address your concern and work closely with integrative care providers to extend the support for any minor or significant side effects. The necessary supportive care services include:

    • Pain management
    • Nutritional support
    • Mind-body management
    • Spiritual support

    The extensive support systems help in your better and quick recovery. To undergo robotic surgery, you may schedule an appointment with Dr Kammar.
