da Vinci Surgery

If you need surgery to treat your colorectal condition, you may be a candidate for da Vinci Surgery — a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure. At Colorectal Surgery, we use the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci Surgical System. The da Vinci allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.

Many standard laparoscopic procedures may be performed more quickly and easily using the da Vinci Surgical System. This is because the da Vinci System delivers equal or improved outcomes while maintaining the same “look and feel” of open surgery. Standard laparoscopy uses small incisions to insert long-shafted instruments, but has certain limitations when the procedure, patient’s anatomy or condition is challenging or complex.

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is unique to each patient and procedure. The da Vinci Surgical System is considered safe and effective, but may not be appropriate for everyone. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as the benefits and risks.
