Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery that allows your surgeon at Colon and Rectal Surgeons of Greater Hartford to do many complex procedures with better precision and control than conventional surgical methods. The advanced surgical practice uses the da Vinci® surgical system to do robotic surgery.

The advanced robotic system includes a high-definition camera and mechanical arms that hold small surgical instruments. Your surgeon at Colon and Rectal Surgeons of Greater Hartford controls the movement of the camera and mechanical arms from a computer console equipped with a 3D viewing screen.

The system mimics the movements of the surgeon but with more precision and control than if done by hand. The high-definition camera provides your surgeon with a magnified view of the surgical area to improve visibility.

What procedures are done using robotic surgery?

The specialists at Colon and Rectal Surgeons of Greater Hartford are dedicated to using the most advanced surgical techniques to ensure the best possible results. The team can use robotic surgery as a treatment for many conditions that affect the colon or rectum like:

  • Rectal cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Diverticulitis

With robotic surgery, the team uses small incisions to perform your procedure, which means smaller scars, less pain, and a faster recovery.

Because of where your rectum is located, and how close it is to other organs, treating rectal cancer is more complicated than treating colon cancer. With robotic surgery, the team can perform your rectal cancer surgery with more precision and accuracy.

Am I a good candidate for robotic surgery?

The surgical experts at Colon and Rectal Surgeons of Greater Hartford determine if you’re a good candidate for robotic surgery during your surgical consultation. Though robotic surgery offers many benefits to you and your surgeon, the best surgical method will depend on your need for surgery, surgical and medical history, and overall health.
