Robotic Surgery in Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery demonstrates the advantages of robotic surgery, providing guidance on accessing parts of the head and neck which are difficult to visualise, and are manually inaccessible to the surgeon.
The book is divided into thirteen chapters across four sections. The first section covers transoral robotic surgery (TORS), a procedure to remove oral cancers whereby a surgeon uses a sophisticated, computer-enhanced system to guide the surgical tools (mayoclinic.org). The second section provides information on robotic thyroid surgery. The third section covers head and neck reconstruction using TORS and the final section discusses forms of robotic surgery currently in development.
Robotic Surgery in Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery is a forward-thinking book, written by leading practitioners and edited by US based specialist Nilesh R Vasan from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Centre. With nearly 200 full colour images and illustrations, including many diagrams, this is an invaluable guide to current and future technologies in robotic surgery for otolaryngologists, and head and neck surgeons.
