If you suffer from a colorectal disease, you may find that symptoms can disrupt your daily life and prevent you from living a higher quality of life. At Jules E. Garbus, MDPC, we can help you find relief with the minimally invasive Da Vinci robotic surgery.

What is the Da Vinci surgery?

Da Vinci is a form of robotic-assisted surgery that allows our doctors to operate within the abdomen in a less invasive way by the use of laparoscopic surgery. With robotic-assisted surgery, procedures are performed with robotic arms equipped with surgical tools and a computer console that produces a three-dimensional view of the operation to assist in the surgery. These mechanics are under the doctor’s control at all times. During the procedure, three small incisions are made in the abdomen, allowing a camera and robotic arms to enter the body with greater precision than that of a human hand.

Benefits of the Da Vinci Surgery

As stated above, the Da Vinci surgery is a form of laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgeries use a slim surgical tool known as a laparoscope that has a small light and telescope attached to the end of it. 

With laparoscopic surgeries, a small incision is made, and the laparoscope is inserted into the surgical site. The light and telescope on the end of the laparoscope enable your doctor to use smaller surgical instruments to complete the surgery without leaving a large scar. 

The Da Vinci procedure has the benefits of both robotic-assisted procedures and laparoscopic surgeries. These benefits include the following:

  • Faster recovery time 
  • Improved precision and accuracy of the procedure 
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Minimal scarring  
  • Reduced pain and discomfort during the procedure
  • Shortened time spent in the hospital 

Following the procedure, some discomfort, soreness, and swelling may be present during the recovery period but should subside within several days.
