Rectal cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the cells of the rectum, which is the final part of the large intestine before the anus.

Causes of rectal cancer can include genetic factors, family history, certain lifestyle choices (such as smoking and a diet high in red meat), inflammatory bowel disease, and age.

Symptoms of rectal cancer may include changes in bowel habits, blood in the stool, abdominal pain or discomfort, weight loss, and fatigue.

Treatment of rectal cancer typically involves a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapies, depending on the stage and extent of the cancer.

Types of Robotic surgeries to treat rectal cancer

Robotic surgery has revolutionized the field of rectal cancer treatment by providing surgeons with enhanced precision, control, and visualization. Here are some types of robotic surgeries commonly used for rectal cancer treatment

Latest technologies to treat rectal cancer

Low-anterior-resection

When the rectal cancer is at least 3 cm away from the anal verge, the surgeon can salvage the sphincter & perform the connection necessary to pass the stool from the natural route. This procedure involves the use of special staplers & surgical dexterity. Sometimes, an operation called inter-sphincteric resection is possible.

Abdomino-perineal-resection

When the tumour is located in the distal most part of the rectum, it is usually not possible to preserve the anal sphincter. The surgeon will remove the tumour along with the anus to prevent any future tumour recurrence in the local area. The surgeon will perform an end sigmoid colostomy over the abdominal wall for stool passage.

Colostomy
In cases where the tumour has grown significantly to block the intestinal lumen, the surgeon may need to perform an operation to temporarily divert the stool. Such a procedure is called a stoma. It is usually a temporary procedure.

In most cases, rectal cancer treatment involves surgical removal of the tumor. However, depending on the cancer’s stage and individual circumstances, other treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be used alone or in combination, but surgery is often a critical component of curative treatment.
