The robot in head and neck cancer: a primer for GPS

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Innovation and improvement in surgical technology have resulted in advances such as robot-assisted surgery. For a subset of patients with head and neck malignancies, particularly oropharyngeal carcinoma, transoral robotic surgery (TORS) offers a minimally invasive treatment option. The use of TORS has the potential to reduce morbidity and improve patients' quality of life. As more head and neck cancer patients are offered the option of robotic-assisted surgeries, patients will inevitably look to their GPs for advice and to seek answers.
