Robot-Assisted Surgery

Just a few years ago, surgical treatment for colorectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis could prove to be very disruptive for the patient, involving a large incision, prolonged hospital stay, and a slow recovery.

Today, we use robot assisted surgical techniques to improve patient outcomes. The robot allows us to approach even complex procedures in a fashion that offers more patients the benefits of minimally invasive surgery: smaller incisions, less discomfort and a faster recovery.
