What Is Robotic Surgery?
While the name might sound futuristic or intimidating, patients have no reason for concern. Even in robotic surgery, the procedure is still performed by one of the world-renowned surgeons at Houston Colon. The difference between traditional or laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery is the tools and techniques involved. In robotic surgery, a few robotic arms are inserted into small incisions. With a camera attached to one and surgical instruments attached to the others, our surgeons operate the components to perform the surgery while getting a magnified, three-dimensional, high-definition view of their work on a digital screen.
Surgical Procedures Performed With Robotics
We understand that it benefits patients to have access and use of today’s most sophisticated and reliable surgical equipment. Our team uses the daVinci™ robot to treat diseases and procedures found in the very narrow constraints of the pelvis. A consultation with the surgeon before your operation will determine if robotic surgery is the right choice, but this technology can be used to treat:
- Colon & Rectal Cancer
- Anorectal Conditions
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
The use of robotics in surgery provides benefits to both the surgeon and the patient. Robotic surgery provides enhanced precision while offering more flexibility and control during the operation. Complicated procedures that were difficult to near impossible with traditional surgical methods are now possible with a much-improved view of the surgical area. Benefits for the patient include:
- Fewer complications and infections
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Quicker recovery period
- Smaller and less noticeable scars
