Surgical robot will "transform" complex cancer surgery at Tayside hospital

Press/Media: Research


A state-of-the-art surgical robot delivered to Ninewells hospital in Tayside has the power to “transform” some complex surgeries, staff have said.

Jai Manickavasagam, head and neck cancer consultant and one of the surgeons who will use the robot to assist procedures, said: “Robotic assisted surgery will bring significant benefits for many patients.

“Robotic surgery, particularly if it is carried out in the head and neck areas, will transform care for those patients requiring complex surgery as it is minimally invasive and, importantly, it enhances choices of treatment for patients with head and neck cancers.”
