I got news yesterday that the surgery for the tongue primary tumor removal is set for the 22nd. My doc will be using the recently FDA approved robotic method - I think it's called the da Vinci machine and the overall surgery is TORS - Trans Oral Robotic Surgery.
Has anyone had experience or know anyone who's had this procedure using a robot? It's supposed to give you good clean margins while preserving more good tissue but I haven't read too much since it's relatively new. Thanks for any feedback.
