Types of Robotic Surgeries and Their Benefits

Types of Robotic Surgeries and Their Benefits

Robotic surgery for esophageal cancer offers numerous benefits, revolutionizing the way this type of cancer is treated. Here are some key advantages:

Latest technologies to treat Esophageal cancer

UGIE & Biopsy for esophagus cancer

UGIE & Biopsy:

UGIE stands for Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, a procedure used to visualize and examine the upper digestive tract, including the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. During UGIE, a flexible tube with a camera (endoscope) is inserted through the mouth to obtain detailed images and diagnose conditions such as ulcers, tumors, or inflammation. Biopsy, a common part of UGIE, involves the collection of tissue samples for further examination and testing.

EUS for esophageal cancer treatment

EUS (Diagnosis, Biopsy):

EUS refers to Endoscopic Ultrasound, a minimally invasive procedure combining endoscopy and ultrasound to visualize and diagnose conditions in the gastrointestinal tract. EUS provides high-resolution images and enables physicians to examine the walls of the digestive tract and nearby organs. It is particularly useful for evaluating tumors, staging cancer, and assessing the depth of invasion. EUS can also be used to perform biopsies, obtaining tissue samples for analysis and diagnosis.
Stenting - Stent Placing for esophageal cancer treatment

Stent placement:

Stent placement involves the insertion of a small, expandable tube (stent) into a narrowed or blocked passageway in the body. Stents are commonly used in the gastrointestinal tract to open up narrowed areas, such as the esophagus, bile ducts, or colon. The stent acts as a scaffold, keeping the passageway open and allowing for the normal flow of fluids or substances. Stent placement can provide relief from symptoms, restore proper function, and alleviate complications caused by obstructions or strictures in the gastrointestinal system.
