da Vinci Colectomy
If you have been diagnosed with a colon condition such as: colon cancer, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, your doctor may recommend surgery. Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy.
If your doctor recommends surgery, ask about minimally invasive da VinciSurgery.
Instead of the large abdominal incision used in open surgery, da Vincisurgeons make just a few small incisions – similar to traditional laparoscopy. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. These features enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
This brochure will give you a better idea of what all is available with the da Vinci Si system.
You can read more about the process and the da Vinci services at their website.
