Did you know that breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women globally? However, it is also one of the few types of cancer with a survival rate as high as 99%. Surgery is one of the best courses of treatment for breast cancer. Robotic surgery, in particular, is a technologically advanced treatment option that has shown extremely promising results. This blog explores the why’s and how’s of robotic surgery for breast cancer with a focus on how Apollo Cancer Centres have pioneered this technology to offer the best in surgical oncology.

What is Robotic Surgery for Breast Cancer

Traditional surgery is performed by surgeons. As opposed to this robotic surgery is performed by advanced robotic systems, ensuring highly precise outcomes. These robotic systems or arms are controlled by trained surgeons and allows them a 10x magnified, high-definition 3D view of the site where the surgery is being performed. This, in turn, lets them perform meticulous movements that would not be possible with a human hand.

Why Robotic Surgery

  • Micro-Precision It goes without saying that robotic systems provide a high degree of precision, which matters a lot when it comes to surgery. Surgery is an intricate affair and it is important to have as minimal disruption as possible to surrounding healthy tissue.
  • Better Cancer Control Owing to the accuracy of robotic surgery, cancerous tissues can be targeted and removed, bringing down the chances of cancer recurring.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection & Blood LossThe risk of infections and amount of blood loss also goes down as incisions tend to be as small as possible.
  • Faster Recovery
  • Reduced Hospital Stay Patients are required to stay at the hospital for a shorter period of time.
  • Less Pain and Scarring Another benefit of smaller and precise incisions is that post-operative pain and scarring are much less.

The da Vinci Surgical System

All Apollo Cancer Centres are equipped with the da Vinci Surgical System. This four-armed robotic system is the most advanced robotic system available for minimally invasive surgery today. It is used in oncological specialties such as urology, gynecology, cardiac, gastrointestinal, thoracic, spine, head and neck and pediatric cancers. By combining advanced computer technology with the expertise of our skilled surgeons, we ensure that patients receive the best possible care.

Types of Surgeries We Offer

Apollo Cancer Centres offer a wide range of surgeries. The type of surgery a patient needs will depend on various factors, such as the stage of the cancer and surgical history.

  • Diagnostic Surgery: Determines the stage and extent of breast cancer through biopsy.
  • Preventive Surgery: Here, any tissue that is suspected to become cancerous in the future is removed, even if there is no actual sign of cancer at the time of surgery.
  • Debulking Surgery: A part or portion of cancerous tissue is removed through this type of surgery. Usually combined with radiation, chemotherapy, and other treatment options.
  • Oncoplastic/Reconstructive Surgery: A cosmetic surgery done after an oncological surgery, it aims to restore the appearance or function of the affected organ or body part.
  • Palliative Surgery: Aims to improve the quality of life of the patient by relieving pain or discomfort caused by tumors.
