Treatment Of Pre-cancerous Lesions May Include The Following:
Removal or destruction of the part of the cervix affected by disease.
Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP)
The process to find out the spread of disease is called staging.
- Stage 0 or Carcinoma in situ: abnormal cells are found in the innermost lining of the cervix which may not be seen to naked eye.
- Stage I: In this stage, cancer is limited to cervix only.
- Stage II: Cancer has spread beyond the cervix but not to the tissues that line the part of the body between the pelvic wall or to the lower third of the vagina.
- Stage III: Cancer has spread to the lower third of the vagina, and/or to the pelvic wall, and/or has caused kidney problems.
- Stage IV: Cancer has spread to the bladder, rectum, or other parts of the body.
Treatment of Invasive Cervical Cancer
- NReduced pain
- N Lower risk of infection or complications
- NLess blood loss (fewer transfusions)
- N Shorter hospital stays
- NLess scarring due to smaller incisions
- NFaster return to normal activities (e.g., sexual function, urinary continence)
How Robotic Surgery works?
With the da Vinci Robotic system’s ergonomic design, the surgeon operates from a comfortable, seated position at a console, with eyes and hands in line with the instruments, and a magnified, high-definition 3-D view of the target anatomy. Some potential advantages of da Vinci Surgery include:
- NGreater surgical precision
- NIncreased range of motion
- NImproved dexterity
- NEnhanced visualization, including areas that may not be seen by the naked eye
- NImproved access to hard-to-reach areas
- NImproved ability to spare healthy tissue not impacted by cancer
