Robotic Surgery
About General Surgery

When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of abdominal and gastrointestinal conditions.  For complex procedures, robot-assisted surgery may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, surgeons using the robot can operate with greater precision, minimize pain and reduce the likelihood of complications after surgery enabling a faster recovery.

Conditions treated robotically include:

  • Colon & rectal cancer
  • Appendicitis
  • Hernia
  • Gallbladder disease

 ***New cutting edge treatment available called single site robotic surgery provides patients with scar-less cosmetic results for general surgery procedures.  Ask your surgeon if you are a candidate for single site.
