It had been his desire for a long time to support them in their hard times. This he is trying to accomplish through Samrohana. The main aim of this organization is Cancer Awareness. Early detection and timely treatment can make a huge difference in overcoming cancer.

Together we can bring about a change in the life of cancer survivors.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is laparoscopy cancer surgery?

Laparoscopy and robotic cancer surgery are also known as Minimal Access Surgery (MACS). This minimally invasive surgery is performed generally for early stages of cancer. In this surgery, the surgeon inserts an instrument called as laparoscopy. The laparoscopic instrument is inserted inside the body by making small incision as compared to open surgery where big cuts are made. A camera is attached to the laparoscopy instrument, which enables the surgeon to get clear images of the organ which is located deep inside the body. The images are shown on the monitor outside.

Is robotic surgery painful?

Robotic surgery itself isn’t painful because patients are under anesthesia. Afterward, discomfort varies but is typically managed with pain medication.

What is robotic cancer surgery?

Robotic cancer surgery is a surgery performed with the help of “Da Vinci” robot. Robotic cancer surgery is a minimal invasive surgery. In this type of surgery, the surgeon sits in front of the monitor which helps in showing HD images of the internal organs. The surgeon performs the surgery with help of robot assisted arms which is inserted into the body by making small incision. Robot assisted cancer surgery helps in carrying out complex surgery with precision and accuracy.

What is the difference between traditional laparoscopy and robot-assisted cancer surgery?

Both laparoscopy and robotic are minimal invasive surgery. Both the surgery is the most modern surgical process for cancer surgery. In laparoscopy surgery, the surgeon performs the surgery by using rigid laparoscopy instrument which has an endoscopic camera which shows the images of the internal organs. The surgeons hand functions in the opposite direction of the instrument. In case of the Da Vinci” robotic cancer surgery, the surgeon sits in front of the console which helps to view the high definition images of the target organ. The robot’s arms move in the direction of the surgeon’s hands, wrist, and finger movements made at the console.

What are the benefits of laparoscopy and robotic surgery?

There are many benefits associated with laparoscopy and robotic surgery related to the patient during and post-surgery. The major benefits of laparoscopy and robotic surgery compared to traditional open cancer surgery are –

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Less blood loss and the need for blood transfusion
  • Few complications post-surgical process
  • The hospital stays will be reduced
  • Less risk of infection
  • Faster recovery and return to normal life.
Is laparoscopic same as robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery, like laparoscopic surgery, uses small incisions, a camera, and surgical equipment. During robotic surgery, however, instead of grasping and manipulating surgical equipment, your surgeon will sit at a computer station and utilize controls to guide the robot. infection risk.
