About Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is the future of surgery. Advanced Surgical Solutions is already there.

 

Thanks to a breakthrough surgical technology, a new type of minimally invasive surgery is available: robotic surgery.

Robotic surgery is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to open surgery and laparoscopy. Through the use of the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons can offer their patients a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures

Robotic surgery provides surgeons with state-of-the-art robotic and computerized technology. Surgery is performed completely by the surgeon with the aid of a highly advanced machine that features enhanced capabilities including high-definition 3D vision and a magnified view.

The da Vinci Surgical System consists of an ergonomically designed surgeon’s console and a separate unit with one robotic camera arm and two interactive robotic arms with high-performance, miniature instruments attached. The patient lies on a table under the robotic arms. Extensively trained surgeons can perform various outpatient procedures using a transumbilical (belly button) entry, which is minimally invasive and leaves no visible scar.

Surgeons at Advanced Surgical Solutions specialize in robotic surgery and will determine if this is an option for your particular treatment need.

Colorectal Surgery

Includes colon resection, rectal resection, hemorrhoids treatment, anal fistula surgery, anal fissure treatment

  • The colon and rectum

    The small intestines, which are attached to the stomach on one end and to the colon on the other, are responsible for the absorption of nutrients in food. The colon, otherwise referred to as the large intestines, holds waste matter after food has been digested. Finally, the waste matter passes to the rectum to be expelled from the body.

    Various disorders of the gastrointestinal tract require surgical treatment. At Advanced Surgical Solutions, we have surgeons who are skilled in colorectal surgeries including colon resection, rectal resection, hemorrhoids treatment, anal fistula surgery and anal fissure treatment.

    Colorectal surgery

    At Advanced Surgical Solutions, surgeons perform colorectal surgeries using a technique known as minimally invasive laparoscopic colon surgery. With this technique, many common colon procedures can be done through four or five small incisions. A laparoscope, which has a small telescope attached to a camera, allows the surgeon to view a magnified image of the patient’s internal organs on a monitor.

    Advantages of laparoscopic colon surgery over traditional open surgery may include less postoperative pain; a shorter hospital stay; and a faster return to a solid-food diet, bowel function and normal activity.

    Even with laparoscopic surgery, there are risks involved. Discuss them with your surgeon before the procedure so you are prepared to recognize any early signs of possible complications.
