With the help of the latest and most advanced technology, colorectal surgery can be performed in a minimally invasive fashion and allow for quicker recovery. Our colorectal experts can help you explore your best options for your surgical needs.
Traditionally, colorectal surgery has been performed via an open incision or using laparoscopy. Robotic colorectal surgery is a new, minimally-invasive option that comes with the benefits of smaller incisions, faster recovery, and more precise techniques. During robotic surgery, your colorectal surgeon will be able to view the surgical site through a camera on a controlled robotic tool. They can perform your procedure with unparalleled precision and reduced trauma on the surrounding tissues for a smooth recovery.
Colorectal surgery can be recommended to intervene in cases of:
- Colon and rectal cancer
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Rectal prolapse
Our team of colorectal surgeons will make sure you understand your options for colorectal surgery and the best treatment options for your specific needs.
It can be daunting to consider undergoing colorectal surgery. Our team of experts will guide you through every step using the best information and technology available.
You’ll be given detailed instructions by our team on how to prepare for your surgery date. This includes stopping certain medications and preparing your bowels for surgery. You’ll consume a solution that will vacate your bowels and allow for better access during surgery. Make sure to drink plenty of clear liquids during this stage to keep yourself hydrated. Depending on the type of anesthetic used, you may be instructed to fast and avoid any liquids ahead of your surgery.
During surgery, your colorectal surgeon will perform the operation using robotic arms aided by a high-definition camera feed. Once your surgery is complete, you’ll be brought to a recovery room.
Your surgery may require a hospital stay, depending on your unique procedure. Once you return home, you’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions and should plan to rest. Robotic colorectal surgery comes with less downtime than traditional surgery. Our team will guide you through the recovery process and be available to answer your questions as needed.
Robotic colorectal surgery is one of the most advanced ways to treat a variety of colorectal conditions. To meet with our experts and learn more about your options, we invite you to contact our office by calling or filling out our online form.
