Frequently Asked Questions
Does the robotic surgery system for cancer operate by itself?
No, there will be a surgeon who will be controlling the robotic arm sitting at the console. The robotic arms work just like a surgeon’s hands with additional precision and enhanced ability to reach the inaccessible regions and operate the tumors efficiently.
How does radiation therapy kill cancer cells?
Radiation therapy involves emitting high doses of radiation that kill or slow down the progress of cancer cells. These radiations directly target the deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA of the cancer cells. Cancer cells whose DNA are damaged are unable to divide and eventually die.
What diseases do oncologists treat?
Oncologists treat different types of cancer. For instance, a hematologist-oncologist may treat leukemia or blood cancer, but a surgical oncologist may be required for surgical management of tumors.
