Robotic cancer surgery for excision of chest tumor

Cliche scenario – 40-year-old NRI comes home for a 30 day annual leave from Dubai, takes a full medical check up just for the sake of it and finds a 10cm tumor sitting inside his chest! Now an NRI working in the middle east has a unique set of issues to face:

  1. Needs to be back at work immediately after his leave period after a major surgery
  2. Should not have big scars that raise suspicion of a major health problem
  3. Should not have any changes in the chest x ray when he goes for future medical fitness test

This guy was home by 3rd day after surgery and back at work within 2 weeks after robotic tumour removal.

Robotics has become the standard of care for removal of chest tumors. Patient experiences and pictures say a lot more than theoretical explanations!

Robotics has changed the whole new experience of undergoing and recovering from major cardiothoracic surgery
