Robotic Colon & Rectal Surgery

Cutting Edge Surgical Options

Rochester General Hospital was the first hospital in Upstate New York to implement the da Vinci Surgical System–the world’s first robotic surgical system with 3D HD vision–offering our patients the most advanced surgical procedures for the best possible outcomes.

This state-of-the-art robotic surgical equipment provides our surgeons with detailed views of your affected tissue at twice the regular resolution with just a few small incisions, allowing them to perform complex colon and rectal operations with greater control and precision than ever before.

Advantages of Robotic Colon & Rectal Surgery

Robotic colon & rectal surgery offers our patients significant advantages over traditional open surgeries. These advantages include:

  • Faster recovery and return to normal, daily activities
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusions
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort
  • Less scarring
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Reduced pain and trauma to your body
  • Shorter hospital stays

Our knowledgeable surgeons will use your medical and surgical history, your condition, and their experience to determine whether robotic colon & rectal surgery is right for you.
