Robotic Sigmoid Colectomy

This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, a breakthrough surgical platform which enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision, dexterity and control. By overcoming the limits of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing colorectal surgery.During this surgery, doctors will remove the affected part of your colon and then join together the remaining healthy sections of the bowel. This reconnection is known as an anastomosis. Surgery on your right colon (ascending) is called a right colectomy; surgery on your left colon (descending) is a left colectomy; and surgery on the sigmoid colon (lower left colon just before the rectum) is called a sigmoid colectomy.

SURGERY BENEFITS :

  • Better clinical outcomes in many cases
  • Quicker return to bowel function
  • Quicker return to a normal diet
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time.
