Benefits of Robotic Surgery:
- Less trauma on the body
- Minimal scarring
- Faster recovery time
Robotic assisted surgery is being performed using the most advanced robot technology available today and manufactured by Intuitive Surgical. The system is called the da Vinci robot. The da Vinci robot is being utilized to successfully treat many colorectal conditions including pelvic tumors, colonic tumors, rectal tumors, complicated resections, rectal prolapse, enterocele repair, and colon resections.
Robotic surgery treats both benign and malignant colorectal diseases. It provides the surgeon with more precise control and increased visibility. With robot-assisted surgery, surgeons now have 360 degree controlled dexterity versus the limitations of traditional, open surgery requiring large incisions for direct, manual access to the targeted anatomy. Greater range of motion and increased productivity by the surgeon during the actual procedure results in less blood loss and trauma on the body. Patients experience faster recovery times, less pain and scarring and quicker return of sexual function, bowel function and normal diet.
