Robotic Colorectal Surgery

Advantages for Patients

Minimally invasive robotics surgery allows your doctor better accuracy. The result for you? Shorter recovery time, better cancer outcomes, and:

  • Low blood loss
  • Bowel function returns more quickly
  • Prompt return to diet
  • Minimal time in the hospital
  • Smaller incisions

Types of Colon Surgery

The da Vinci surgical robot has three-dimensional monitors, and instruments that mimic movements of the hand and wrist. Together, these improve your surgeon's ability to see and move within a fixed space, such as the pelvis. Surgeons can remove cancer and surrounding affected tissue without damaging nerves. Colorectal conditions where robotic surgery is performed include:

  • Colon cancer
  • Rectal cancer
  • Diverticulitis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease)
