The change of pace that is occurring in the field of surgery continues to accelerate and pave the way for new and innovative ways to address the limitations that are encountered in traditional surgical practices. This acceleration and adoption of technology has allowed robotic surgery to be an option for patients, including those that qualify for colon resectioning. The use of this system allows for complex surgical tasks to be completed in a minimally invasive manner.
Minimally invasive surgery, when it comes to robotic colon resectioning, provides the surgeon a greater range of dexterity and freedom that is compromised when using traditional laparoscopic instruments and practices. Because the Da Vinci robotic system comes equipped with high definition cameras, the surgeon has improved visualization of confined areas within the pelvic region, improved articulation of the working arms in order to provide a more accurate dissection and intuitive manipulation of the surgical instruments.
