da Vinci Robotic-assisted Surgery

da VinciIf your gastroenterologist decides that colon surgery is the best option for you, he will work with you to determine your best option — which may include robotic-assisted surgery.

  • Reduced blood loss
  • Quicker return to bowel function
  • Quicker return to diet
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Excellent clinical outcomes for cancer control
  • Faster recover time
