While registering great success in the field of medicine, doctors first conducted a surgery through Robot in the world under the leadership of Assistant Professor Neil Malhotra of Indian origin. Tumors were removed from the neck of a patient with the help of a robot. Chordoma is a type of cancer that occurs between the scalp and the spinal cord. Cordoma’s tumor gradually accepts seriousness. The special thing is that for many years, it is not known about this.
Noa Pernikoff, 27, of America, was wounded in a car accident in 2016. After recovering from a minor injury, suddenly one day a lot of pain started in his neck. After this X-ray was detected, there was a lot of injuries in the neck. These wounds were not related to the accident and were much more lethal than the injury they suffered. After that, there was a biopsy of that place. After the biopsy, it was discovered that Pernicoff had chordoma tumor in the neck.
Although surgery is the best choice for chordoma treatment, it was very difficult in case of Pernikoff. Therefore, the option to eliminate the tumor was started considering proton therapy. By the way, cardoma is very few people. Every year one person is influenced by one in ten million people. In Pernikoff’s case, its treatment was quite challenging. In August last year, at the University of Pennsylvania’s University Hospital, Pernikoff underwent robotic surgery. This surgery was done in three phases. Robots were used in the second stage of surgery.
In the first round, neurosurgeon cut the spinal cord near the tumor in the back of the patient’s neck so that the tumor could be removed from the mouth in the second phase. Through the use of the surgical robot in the second stage, the doctor’s team cleared the neck part from the neck so that the tumor could be removed. In the third phase, the team put the penicillin spinal cord in its first place. After 9 months of surgery, Parnikoff returned to work.
