Perioperative Concerns in Transoral Robotic Surgeries (TORS): Our Initial Experience
Robotic surgery being minimally invasive is becoming popular due to decreased postoperative morbidity, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and better cosmetic results when compared to open conventional techniques.Weinstein and O’Malley first developed TORS. In this case series of three patients who underwent TORS, we would like to share our experience in perioperative concerns for TORS.
