Thanks to the da Vinci® Surgical System, Maggie Westlund is now cancer-free!

Dr. Pandit proposed using transoral robotic surgery (TORS) utilizing the da Vinci® Surgical System, which was more beneficial for two reasons; 1.) it avoided the need to make an incision in the throat and 2.) it allowed Dr. Pandit to perform the procedure through her mouth, allowing him to see better and do more intricate surgery. Thanks to surgeon Rajiv Pandit, MD, and the da Vinci® Surgical System, young mom Maggie Westlund is free of throat cancer and loving life! Read the full story Maggie's experience here!
