Robotic Cancer Surgery - For Unparalleled Precision

The main features of this type of surgery are :

Can reach areas which were hard to access

 Improves visualization and also highlight the areas that would be difficult to view with the naked eye

 Gives a wider range of motion

 Provides a high level of surgical precision

 Enhanced dexterity

 Allows better clearance of cancer while preserving the healthy tissues

 Also helps preserve blood vessels and nerve fibres in delicate surgeries like prostate.


This is the main reason why Dr. Sandeep Nayak went overseas to gain knowledge and master the techniques of Laparoscopic and Robotic surgeries.

To perform robotic cancer surgeries, the surgeon has to be highly trained in this method as it requires a high level of skills and expertise.

Dr. Sandeep Nayak is an expert when it comes to Robotic cancer surgery and has performed hundreds of surgeries using this advanced surgical method. Hence, he is considered the best oncologist in India.

Well, robotic surgery does not imply that a robot will do the surgery. It simply means that the surgeon will conduct the surgery using robotic surgery system like da Vinci surgical system.

However, this system will not work without the surgeon’s input as it cannot be programmed. So, the surgeon controls the robotic arms from a console placed nearby.

Robotic surgery offers great precision, vision and control to the surgeon hereby making the recovery process quicker and reduces the level of pain to a greater extent.

During this surgery, a few small incisions are made through which miniature surgical instruments and a camera is inserted in the patient’s body.

The surgical site can be viewed in a magnified, 3D high-resolution image on the monitor.

The surgeon moves the instrument and camera with the help of the controls. The robotic arm precisely follows the movements of the surgeon’s fingers, wrist and hand in real time.



Robotic Cancer Surgeries are mainly used to operate areas which were hard to reach and require great precision. This includes cancer surgery for oesophagus, throat, stomach, colon, pancreas, prostate, liver, gynecologic areas like vulvar, ovarian, uterine and cervical.


How to choose which surgical option is the best?

Here, Dr. Sandeep Nayak is of the opinion that the surgical techniques do not matter when it comes to the surgery as all types of surgery be it open, laparoscopic or robotic gives good results in the long term.

However, you need to get your surgery done by a surgeon who is proficient and highly experienced in the type of procedure you are looking for.

When it comes to Dr. Nayak, he always favors Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgeries over the open cancer surgery as they provide the patient with greater comfort, lesser pain and also lowers the risk of complications.

Furthermore, there are few doctors who are as experienced as Dr. Sandeep Nayak, the best oncologist in India when it comes to Robotic Cancer Surgery.


Why is robotic cancer surgery a game-changer in fighting cancer?

Robotic surgery with the da Vinci System, one of the most advanced surgical equipment, allows for exceptionally high definition and magnified 3-dimensional vision. It helps the surgery to be performed with the utmost flexibility and precision.

The surgeon can employ instruments with exceptional degrees of freedom in limited places to access difficult-to-reach malignancies and at angles that are not possible with laparoscopic equipment. 

With motion scaling, the surgeon can minimize the amount of instrument movement to a fraction of the finger movement, allowing more accuracy. 

Dr. Sandeep Nayak, an ace surgical oncologist in India, always prefers using robotic cancer surgery as it provides enhanced vision, thereby helping in preserving the nerves and other critical structures while conducting radical surgeries.

It is especially crucial when it comes to rectal, prostate, and gynecologic cancer operations. As the veins and nerves are magnified in robotic surgery, it becomes considerably easier to save them from damage, thereby preserving their potency.


Cancers Dr. Sandeep Nayak treats using robotic surgery.


Gynecologic cancers: Dr. Sandeep Nayak, one of the best surgical oncologist in India, has extensive experience using robotic surgery to treat a variety of gynecological malignancies, such as ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, fallopian tube cancer, and endometrial cancer.


Colorectal cancer: Surgeries for colon and rectal cancers are often complex, and thus robotic surgery is the best option. The surgeon uses nerve-sparing surgical procedures to preserve bladder, sphincter, and sexual function if possible.


Head and neck cancer: Dr. Sandeep Nayak uses innovative approaches for accessing difficult-to-reach head and neck cancers using assistive robots. Transoral robotic surgery allows the surgeon to reach malignancies through the mouth (TORS). External incisions through the face and jaw are not required.


Thyroid cancer: The surgeon uses robotic surgery to treat thyroid tumors, providing quick recovery and no visible scars.


Thoracic cancer: The doctor uses robotic surgery to treat esophageal cancer, thymus cancer, lung cancer, and other mediastinal cancers.


Urologic cancer: For Dr. Sandeep Nayak, robotic is a standard surgical approach for treating urologic cancers like prostate cancer, bladder cancer, penile cancer, and testicular cancer. Bladder cancer robotic surgery techniques have advanced, enabling both whole and partial bladder removal using the minimally invasive approach.
