General Robotic Surgery 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Robotics can be used to take a minimally invasive approach to several general surgical procedures:

  • Surgery for chronic reflux disease
  • Surgery for achalasia, a disease of the esophagus
  • Colon surgery

Surgeons using robotics can operate with control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.

Potential benefits of robotic surgery may include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
  • Better clinical outcomes
