Types of Robotic Surgeries for rectal cancer treatment

Robotic surgery has transformed the way rectal cancer is treated, giving surgeons better accuracy, control, and the ability to see more clearly. Here are some common types of robotic surgeries used for treating rectal cancer:

Robot-Assisted Low Anterior Resection (LAR): In this surgery, the part of the rectum with cancer is removed but the muscles controlling bowel movements are saved.

Rectal Cancer Removal Operation By Dr. Harsh Shah

Low-anterior-resection

Low-anterior resection

If the rectal cancer is at least 3 cm away from the start of the anus, the surgeon can save the sphincter muscle, which controls bowel movements. They can then make a connection so that stool can pass out of the body in the normal way. This operation requires special tools called staplers and careful surgical skills. Sometimes, they can do a type of surgery called inter-sphincteric resection.
Abdomino-perineal-resection

Abdomino-perineal resection

When the tumor is in the very lower part of the rectum, it's often not possible to save the anus. The surgeon will remove the tumor and the anus to stop cancer from coming back in that area. They will make an opening in the abdominal wall, called an end sigmoid colostomy, for poop to come out.
Colostomy

Colostomy

When a tumor has grown large enough to block the passage inside the intestine, the surgeon might have to do a surgery to reroute the stool temporarily. This operation is known as creating a stoma. It's generally done for a short period.
