How it Works

The surgeon inserts small instruments and a camera through keyhole incisions in the abdomen and removes a tissue sample for a pathologist to examine. If cancer is present, the surgeon removes the cancerous tissue.

The procedure also lets the surgeon look within the abdomen to see if the cancer has spread to other organs.

Clearer Visualization. Greater Precision.

The robotic surgical system lets your surgeon perform a more precise, tremorless procedure. It offers:

  • Superior tools for more precise surgeries
  • Better visualization, which is critical when working around delicate and confined structures or removing tumors

Benefits Over Traditional Open Surgery

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities
  • Less risk of wound infection
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
