Benefits of Robotic surgery in Testicular Cancer

Surgery for Testicular Cancer requires a long cut on patient`s tummy. If done by Robotic surgery, the same can be done through small holes.

Testicular Cancer is the most common cancer in young men. Around 95% of them can be cured with treatment. Treatment includes Surgery, Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy. Treatment depends on type and stage of Testicular Cancer.

Surgery for Testicular Cancer is called Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection. It involves removal of lymph glands in the abdomen, near the major vessels. The surgery is done to stage the disease or to remove the involved lymph nodes.

Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection requires a long cut on the abdomen, meticulous surgery and proper perioperative management.

If performed using a Robot, this surgery can be done meticulously through small holes.

Robotic surgery is the latest advance in cancer operations

Robotic Surgery reduces the problems of surgery, while increasing its benefits

The special aspects of Robotic surgery are:

Special camera
3 Dimension, High Definition, 10 X magnified view
Tiny blood vessels can be seen and controlled – Less blood loss
Nerves are better seen and preserved – better function
Special instruments
rotate 360 degrees, can perform fine movements at all angles
Cancer surgeries can be performed with precision
Surgeon can work easily along critical structures like blood vessels
Tremors are filtered
Surgeon`s console
Surgeon sees through it
His movements are transferred to the instruments inside patient`s tummy
Surgery for Testicular Cancer
Retroperitoneal Lymph Nodes are situated near and behind the major blood vessels in the abdomen. For removing all these nodes, precision is required. The nerves in this area are essential for sexual function. The blood vessels can bleed heavily if injured. The vessels and nerves have to be preserved. Robotic system helps the surgeon in performing this surgery through small holes.

Robotic Surgery is done through small holes which benefits the patient
No big cut – Less pain
early return to normal diet
Shorter hospital stay
Faster recovery, faster return to work
