The purpose of this study is to conduct a pilot single-arm to assess transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for oral and laryngopharyngeal benign and malignant lesions using the Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System.
Patients are going to be evaluated in their usual regular clinical follow ups starting with preoperative first visit, 3 weeks, 3 months and 6 months postoperatively with a Quality of Life survey (Head and Neck Cancer Inventory, HNCI-QOLQ).

To assess the use of the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA) in transoral surgeries in patients with benign and malignant lesions of the oral cavit...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) to identify small oropharyngeal carcinomas. Findings from this study will be used to better determine w...
RATIONALE: Transoral robotic surgery may make it easier to find and remove benign or malignant tumors of the larynx and pharynx and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known ...
Robotic head and neck surgery applies minimally invasive principles to unique anatomy and natural orifices for surgical access. Expanding from a tradition of minimally invasive endoscopic otolaryngolo...
The aim of our study is to demonstrate our technique for performing transoral robotic surgical total laryngectomy (TORS-TL) with the use of the da Vinci robotic system.
Following the inception of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in 2005, the field of robotic head and neck surgery has undergone refinement and innovation. Optimizing patient outcome, preserving function...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and early surgical outcomes of transoral thyroidectomy and to compare robotic and endoscopic procedures.
The first application of robotic technology in surgery was described in 1985 when a robot was used to define the trajectory for a stereotactic brain biopsy. Following its successful application in a v...
Surgical procedures performed using a computer that remotely controls surgical instruments attached to mechanical arms designed to perform the tasks of the surgeon.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
Layer between the superficial fat compartment and superficial facial muscles in the head and the neck.
A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
