Colon, Rectal, and Small Bowel Robotic Surgery
Many colon, rectum, or small bowel may require surgical intervention. An ARC general surgeon can work with you to develop a treatment plan that helps you understand the reason for a particular intervention and be by your side throughout the treatment. Surgical options to treat colon or rectal cancer, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease), and other conditions can include traditional open or minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
Minimally invasive colon surgery with the da Vinci robotic system
If your condition requires colorectal surgery colectomy, ask your doctor about minimally invasive surgery with the da Vinci robotic system. Minimally invasive techniques utilizing the da Vinci platform allows surgeons to make a few small incisions and operate with enhanced 3D vision, dexterity, and control. Smaller incisions mean a smaller wound, less pain and blood loss, and a faster recovery.
- Colon Polyps
Polyps are a small clump of cells that forms on the lining of the colon or rectum. These bumps are mostly harmless but can develop into cancer.
- Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine (colon), the last part of your digestive tract.
- Rectal Cancer
Rectal cancer is a malignant disease that affects the tissues of the rectum.
Diverticulitis is when the pouches in your colon get infected.
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Chron's Disease)
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Chron's Disease)
Inflammatory bowel disease is the ongoing inflammation of all or part of the digestive tract, which can cause discomfort.
