Can robotic surgery be used for colon cancer treatment?Colorectal Surgery Cancer
I've read that robotic surgery can result in less pain and blood loss. I was wondering if it is available and suitable for colon cancer surgery as well, as I am finding the best treatment options for my dad.
Robotic surgery can sometimes be used in colo-rectal cancer. It may or may not be necessary. It can be useful in cases whereby the tumour is near vital structures like that of the anal sphincter.
It is best you discuss this with your treating doctor.
