Oncology Surgery

Oncology is a subspecialty of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer or suspected cancer. It also deals with the diagnosis and treatment of tumor cells. Cancer begins when cell division starts to grow out of control. The field of oncology has three major areas: medical, surgical, and radiation.

(a) Robot-assisted surgery offers cancer patients various unique advantages. The robot helps replicate the surgeon’s hand movements while removing the tumors.It consists of several advantages like less damage to healthy tissue, less pain during surgery, minimal blood loss on surgery, faster recovery, reduced risk of infection, better cancer control. The machine is designed to console viewing a 3-D image of the operative site. As the surgeon moves his hands, wrists, and fingers, the instruments are performing the same movements inside the patient’s body.

(b) Surgery is the oldest way to treat cancer. Before the surgery, the surgeon determines whether the cancer is respectable or not.In surgical oncology, the cancer cells are removed by the surgical way. The type of surgeries actually depends on the stage & location of the tumor.
