da Vinci® Surgery for Colon Cancer
If your doctor recommends surgery to treat colon cancer (right, left or sigmoid colectomy), you may be a candidate for minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery. Using the most advanced technology available, the da Vinci Surgical System enables your doctor to perform this delicate operation through a few tiny incisions with breakthrough vision, precision and control. da Vinci Surgery offers colon cancer patients such potential benefits as:
- Low blood loss
- Quick return to bowel function
- Quick return to diet
- Short hospital stay
The da Vinci System is a state-of-the-art surgical platform with 3D, high-definition vision and patented surgical instruments that takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By overcoming the challenges of traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
