da Vinci® Robotic Surgery



da Vinci® Colorectal Surgery

da Vinci® minimally invasive, robot-assisted surgery for colorectal procedures

If your doctor recommends surgery to treat a colorectal condition, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery, performed by independently practicing physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff. Using state-of-the-art technology, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System enables doctors to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with breakthrough vision, precision, dexterity, and control.

da Vinci Surgery is used to treat such colorectal conditions as: 

Surgery to remove all or part of the colon is known as a colectomy. Rectal cancer surgery is known as a low anterior resection.

da Vinci offers patients facing colon surgery (right, left or sigmoid colectomy) such potential benefits as:

  • Low blood loss 
  • Quick return to bowel function
  • Fast return to diet
  • Short hospital stay

da Vinci offers patients facing rectal cancer surgery (low anterior resection and APR) such potential benefits as:

  • Excellent clinical outcomes for cancer control 
  • Quick return of bowel function
  • Fast return to diet
  • Less blood loss
  • Short hospital stay
  • Fast recovery time

The da Vinci System is a state-of-the-art surgical platform with 3D, high-definition vision and patented surgical instruments that takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By overcoming the challenges of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
