Not all cancers are suitable to be treated with robotic surgery and not all patients are suitable for the robotic surgery. The patients are selected based on clinical factors of tumor and the scientific evidence for the benefit. Most benefit is obtained in early tumors of hypopharynx, thoracic cancers, pelvic cancers like rectum, prostrate and endometrium. The conditions treated with robotic surgery in Apollo Cancer center using robotic surgery include
- Gastrointestinal cancers- Rectal cancers, early stomach cancers, early liver cancers and pancreatic tumors.
