ROBOTICS IN COLORECTAL SURGERY

<< BACK

Robotic surgery is now an extremely useful option in Colorectal surgery.

If medicine or lifestyle changes do not help a colorectal condition,the doctor may suggest surgery.

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, there is a new category of minimally invasive surgery, an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. This is the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System, which enables surgeons to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. The da Vinci System gives surgeons:

  • A 3D HD view inside the body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Enhanced vision, precision and control

Common colorectal conditions that may need surgery include:

  • Diverticulitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease)
  • Colon Cancer
  • Rectal Cancer

Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy, and rectal cancer surgery to remove part or all or the rectum is known as a rectal resection. Minimally invasive surgery can be done using traditional laparoscopy or robotic-assisted da Vinci Surgery.
