    Definition of transoral robotic surgery for oral cancer

    In transoral robotic surgery, the robot’s precise wrist-like action allows surgical removal of the tumor by working in multiple directions in tight spaces with the capability to work around corners. Guiding the surgery from the command console, the surgeon uses 3-D imaging and instruments attached to the robotic arms, which improves precision when removing the cancer.
