Singapore Medicine - First in South East Asia to Offer Robotic Surgery for Gynaecologic Cancers
Date:11/5/2008

Singapore's National University Hospital became the first in Asia to offer the first robotic assisted surgery to gynaecologic cancer patient in August 2008.

Singapore (PRWEB) November 5, 2008 -- Women who need to undergo surgery for gynaecological cancers now have an option to have surgery that is less painful, results in less scarring, allows them to get back on their feet faster while being just as effective in removing cancer - by opting for robotic cancer surgery. With this surgical breakthrough, patients avoid the complications associated with more traditional approaches to surgery for women's cancers.

The Gynaecologic Robot-Assisted Cancer and Endoscopic Surgery at Singapore's National University Hospital surgical programme (GRACES @ NUH) started offering this option to gynaecologic cancer patients in August 2008. The first patient to receive this treatment was a 52-year-old woman with endometrial cancer. She was ready to be discharged after only 48 hours in hospital following a major cancer surgery, and was back on her feet in less than half the time it would take for a patient undergoing traditional surgery for endometrial cancer. She was able to accomplish this feat because she did not have to contend with the painful handicap of a sizeable surgical wound, the side effects of multiple pain medications or weakness from blood loss which remain common problems associated with traditional endometrial cancer surgery.

The GRACES @ NUH surgical team involved in this surgery comprised Dr Jeffrey Low and Prof Ilancheran (both Senior Consultants), Dr Joseph Ng (Consultant),
