The colorectal surgeons at South Miami Hospital are using the robot as a tool to treat diseases of the colon and rectum, including cancer, diverticulitis and rectal polyps. It is the latest evolution in colorectal surgery, giving our surgeons unmatched precision, dexterity and control.
With the robot’s high-tech, three-dimensional imaging, surgeons see deep into the confined pelvic region, examining delicate nerves and tissues. The picture, with its magnification and clarity, provides an unparalleled view of the diseased area.
Our surgeons then maneuver the robot’s interactive arms and micro-instruments – cutting, grasping and stitching – while protecting surrounding healthy tissue. The result is an accurate procedure with fewer post-surgery complications that allows for excellent cancer control and a quicker return to bowel function and normal diet.
