Karmanos Cancer Center Surgeon is Michigan's First to Perform Transoral Robotic Surgery on Patients
Date:5/12/2010

icate procedures to remove cancerous tissue.

Da Vinci also comes with a three-dimensional, high-definition viewing screen, which provides the surgeon a clearer view of the operative field in the back part of the throat and voice box.

With the traditional surgical method, patients would be in the hospital recovering for one to two weeks. Dr. Lin mentioned that patients can leave the hospital in a few days after minimally-invasive robotic surgery. Other possible benefits of the da Vinci system include less blood loss, no visible scarring, no tracheotomy, fewer surgical complications and better cancer control.

Spears said that he is cancer-free today. Following the surgery, he went through chemoradiation, which he completed in mid-February of this year. Because of the surgery, his radiation oncologist Harold Kim, M.D., was able to reduce the radiation dose to the primary site which may potentially reduce the long term complications associated with high-dose radiation. He sees his Karmanos oncologist, Ammar Sukari, M.D., member of the Head and Neck Oncology Multidisciplinary Team, once a month for regular checkups.

Spears has regained his ability to swallow after losing that for two months. He is hoping to regain his sense of taste, which doctors have told him will return in three to six months. His voice has been affected, but he is able to eat most foods.

"I feel great," Spears said. "Dr. Lin was very nice and very thorough in explaining the procedure to me. I received wonderful service at Karmanos and everyone has been great."
