Why You May Need to See a Robotic Colon Surgeon | Northern Virginia

If you have recently been diagnosed with a medical condition such as colon cancer or rectal cancer you may benefit from a robotic colon surgeon.

Northern Virginia Surgical Specialists offers this option for patients today.

Learn all about how robotic surgery can potentially help you, below.

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?

Robotic Surgery was specifically developed to overcome any limitations that are associated with both open surgery and laparoscopic 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.

Robotic surgery is available for over 60% of patients, making it one of the most accessible surgical options to treat patients with these sensitive conditions.
