To compare the clinical and cost outcomes of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) versus open procedures following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval in December 2009, a comparison of the TORS and open procedures is compared.

Analysis of readmissions after transoral robotic surgery for oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma

As transoral robotic surgery (TORS) is being increasingly used to treat patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC), there is an interest in determining contributors to readmission.

Feasibility of rapid discharge after transoral robotic surgery of the oropharynx
