(Photo by Paula Burch-Celentano) Tulane Doctor Performs New Robotic Throat Cancer Surgery Tulane University School of Medicine surgeon Dr. Paul Friedlander is one of the first in the state to perform a new, less-invasive form of robotic surgery to treat head and neck cancers. The technique, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last year, uses the latest da Vinci three-dimensional, high-definition robotic equipment to make an incision through the mouth to remove tumors without a visible scar. Traditional open surgery to remove throat cancer typically requires a long incision through the jaw and throat. The new approach has fewer complications, faster recovery, quicker return of speech and swallowing functions, and patients can often avoid chemotherapy following radiation treatment. Patients can be released from the hospital within a day for the new procedure compared to a week- to 10-day stay following the traditional technique, Friedlander says. This is a huge technological leap in terms of treatment, says Friedlander, chair of the Department of Otolaryngology.
