Transoral Robotic Surgery

Transoral Robotic Surgery

Traditional surgery for tumors of the mouth and throat require a large incision so the surgeon's hands can fit inside the patient's throat and oral cavity.

But skilled otolaryngologists at Augusta University Medical Center offer a much less invasive solution that does not require an incision.

Transoral Robotic Surgery

How it Works

The robotic arms and camera of the surgical system are positioned in the oral cavity, allowing the surgical movement to take place within the oral cavity. The surgeon then has a close-up high definition view of the mouth and throat area as he or she guides the robotic instruments.

This allows the surgeon to clearly see and carefully remove tumors while sparing healthy tissue.
