Robotic Surgery

Radiotherapy usually does not affect your routine activities or work. It actually depends on the type of radiation therapy you are receiving, how well does your body take it, how do you feel during and after the treatment and the type of work you do i.e., how stressful or strenuous is your work is. While most of the people feel well enough and no significant difficulties performing their daily activities, others may need to reduce their working hours or take time off. Your radiation therapy team can help you out regarding this and can schedule your appointments suited for your work schedules. You may also discuss this about with your employer and keep them well informed about how radiation therapy is affecting you, and how much it can affect your working hours and discuss the options of flexible hours, other shifts or taking leave.

The radiation therapist gives you the radiation treatment, but the radiation therapy team comprises of other experts for radiation therapy and they all together assess, discuss and decide your treatment plan.
Multi-disciplinary team of professionals are involved in the treatment planning for a cancer patient undergoing radiotherapy on an individual basis. Professionals involved in radiation therapy treatment include:

Radiation oncologist – The medical physician specialized in radiation therapy for cancer treatment. This person plans your radiation treatment.

  • Radiation oncology nurse – Nurse specially trained in cancer treatment and managing side effects.
  • Medical radiation physicist – Ensures the functioning of the radiation equipment and that administers the exact dose to patient as prescribed by the radiation oncologist.
  • Dosimetrist – A dosimetrist is specialized personnel who can design, generate, and measure radiation dose calculations working along with the medical radiation physicist and radiation oncologist. This person helps the radiation oncologist in deciding treatment plan.

No, the robot does not perform the surgery during robotic surgery. Instead, the surgeon does the surgery by controlling the robotic arms.

The criteria for robotic surgery vary between patients and the type of surgery required. Therefore, the patients should consult with the surgeons to discuss whether they can undergo robotic surgery.
