Dr. Siegel on the Da Vinci Robotic Assisted Surgery Technique in Head and Neck Cancer

Robert Siegel, MD
Published: Friday, Aug 18, 2017



Robert Siegel, MD, chair, professor of medicine, director, Division of Hematology/Oncology, George Washington University, discusses the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery technique in head and neck cancer.

In a phase II study of induction chemotherapy and transoral surgery as definitive treatment for locally advanced oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, the da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery technique was used instead of traditional surgery.

The use of da Vinci robotic technique allows the instruments to have a wider range of movement than a surgeon’s risk, says Siegel.
