Surgical telementoring : a future paradigm shift in surgical education / Bert W. O'Malley, Jr. and Gregory S. Weinstein. Cancer surgery of the mouth and throat can involve major incision wounds, tracheotomy, or necessitate the breaking of bones. Recognizing the benefits and success of robotic surgery in other areas of medicine, the authors present its use in head and neck surgery, resulting in less surgery, less deformity, and faster rehabilitation. In this new book, the authors describe the preoperative aspects of this book, including patient evaluation, instrumentation and set-up, moving on to diagnostic endoscopic and surgical techniques for tonsillectomy, laryngectomy, tongue base and glottic resection, and speech and swallowing considerations. They conclude with an examination of the potential for TORS in skull-base surgery, its future application and, importantly, telesurgery via the Internet.
