Robot performed endoscopic surgeries for colorectal, kidney, bladder and prostate cancers.
Hospital Deputy Director Nguyen Phuc Cam Hoang said that robotically-assisted operations have high rate of success Due to robotic use, the surgery is done with precision, miniaturization, smaller incisions; decreased blood loss, less pain, and quicker healing time.

Only one patient with kidney cancer underwent open surgery because the tumor is attached with other organs in his body.
