Better Survival in Oropharyngeal Cancer After Robotic Surgery
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/936219

Aug 24th, 2020 - Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) was associated with better survival and improved surgical outcomes in comparison with nonrobotic surgery in patients with early-stage oropharyngeal cancer in a retrospective analysis of nearly 10,000 cases. The sur...

Robotic Surgery vs Radiation in Oropharyngeal Cancer
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/914286

Jun 12th, 2019 - CHICAGO — For patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer (OPSCC), opting for radiation therapy rather than surgery may result in better swallowing outcomes, which in turn may mean a better quality of life, according to new findings. The find...
