Colorectal Robotic Surgery
Surgery can be a scary proposition for a patient, no matter how routine the procedure. If surgery is recommended, you want to learn as much as you can about your surgical options.
While surgery is generally the most effective treatment option for a range of abdominal and other conditions, such as colon cancer, traditional open surgery with a large incision has its drawbacks – pain, trauma, long recovery time and risk of infection.
Fortunately, less invasive options are available to many patients facing surgery. The most common of these is laparoscopic surgery, in which smaller incisions are used. While laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures, it has inherent limitations when more intricate and complex surgery is required.
Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, doctors now have an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and laparoscopy that allows them to provide patients with the best of both approaches. With the assistance of the da Vinci Surgical System, UAMS surgeons can now operate using only 1- to 2-centimeter incisions, but with greater precision and control than ever before.
UAMS’ da Vinci Surgical System can help surgeons minimize the pain and risk associated with surgery while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent outcomes.
