Why Robotic Surgery?
Traditionally, conditions such as colon cancer, rectal cancer, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, and other colorectal conditions have been treated through open surgery or laparoscopic surgery.
However, robotic surgery is the newest method that is providing a minimally invasive solution for patients with even the most complex disorders.
What Is Robotic Surgery?

In fact, your robotic surgery can provide the best chance for clear visualization of the treatment area and offer more exact instrumentation than the laparoscopic method.
