Robotic-assisted head and neck surgery is a cutting-edge technique.
At the UPMC Center for Robotic Head and Neck Surgery, the robotic system allows our surgeons to:
Both adults and children can benefit from robotic head and neck surgery, including those with:
Robotic-assisted head and neck surgery can have many advantages over open surgery and other minimally invasive procedures.
For people with early-stage cancers of the base of the tongue and tonsil, robotic surgery reduces the amount of radiation or chemotherapy.
People with thyroid nodules can have robotic thyroid surgery without a scar in the neck.
Because the device’s arms bend and have a range of motion similar to the human wrist, surgeons are able to move instruments more easily than with standard minimally invasive procedures.
Having better access to hard-to-reach areas makes it possible for surgeons to perform complex operations that may not be possible with other methods.
