The FDA recently approved the use of robotic surgical techniques for transoral operations. The Nebraska Medical Center was the first hospital in Nebraska to begin offering this surgery for oral tumors. This approach can potentially save the patient from undergoing a longer, more complicated open surgery which comes with a much longer hospital stay and longer list of potential complications. In the case of the patient in this video, surgeon Dr. Russell Smith hopes removing the squamous cell tumor on her right tonsil robotically will keep her from having to undergo chemotherapy after surgery.
