Robotic Colorectal Surgery & General Cancer Surgery
Advances in minimally invasive technologies and surgical techniques—such as robotic colorectal surgery—have changed the way many colon cancer surgeries are performed today.
Northern Westchester Hospital colorectal surgeons routinely perform minimally invasive robot-assisted colorectal surgery and general surgery using da Vinci robots. The da Vinci robot is a tremendously sophisticated and precise surgical tool used by specially trained surgeons to enhance precision and further improve outcomes from colorectal surgery. Patients who have robotic colorectal surgery require smaller incisions and scarring, which can result in quicker healing, allowing them to recover sooner, and move on to additional colon cancer treatment and cancer rehabilitation if needed.
Northern Westchester Hospital as a designated Training Epicenter for Robot-assisted Colon and Rectal Surgery—a peer-to-peer training network for the da Vinci Surgery System. Learn about this da Vinci Surgical System designation >
