Robotic Surgery at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center

Robotic General and Gastrointestinal Surgery

Traditional open surgery with a large incision has certain potential drawbacks such as a prolonged hospital stay, significant pain and a lengthy recovery. Fortunately, less invasive options are available to many patients facing general and gastrointestinal surgery. The most common of these is laparoscopic surgery, in which smaller incisions are used. While laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures, it may have limitations when more intricate and complex surgery is required. 

With the latest evolution in surgical technology, doctors now have an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery – da Vinci Surgery. It is a robotic surgical platform that allows surgeons to provide patients with the best of both open and laparoscopic approaches, often with less pain, faster recovery and excellent outcomes. The da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to operate through tiny incisions, with greater vision, dexterity, precision and control, making it ideal for complex gastrointestinal surgery. During the entire procedure, your surgeon is in complete control.
