MINIMALLY INVASIVE GASTROINTESTINAL SURGERY
What is Gastrointestinal Surgery?
Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract involve the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestines, colon and rectum. No specialist is more knowledgeable about the surgical treatment of the gastrointestinal tract than a general surgeon.
What is Minimally Invasive Surgery?
Many abdominal surgeries can now be performed in a minimally invasive fashion through small incisions. A laparoscopic or robotic procedure can often shorten a patient’s recovery and hospitalization. Our surgeons emphasize this approach to abdominal and gastrointestinal diseases whenever possible.
What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic-assisted surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision and control than is possible with conventional techniques.
Robotic surgery has been rapidly adopted by multiple surgical specialties across the Unites States and Europe and Asia. The robotic surgical system includes a camera and mechanical arms with surgical instruments attached to them. The surgeon controls these arms from a console that gives a high definition, magnified, 3-D view.
Advantages of Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery has improved the already tremendous advantage of minimally invasive surgery. Now even more surgeries can be performed in a minimally invasive approach. Benefits include:
Few complications, including surgical site infections
Less pain and blood loss
Smaller, less noticeable scars
