Robotic Large Bowel Surgery:
Minimally invasive surgical approaches to colorectal disease have been proven over the last two decades. It can no longer be argued that these laparoscopic approaches offer advantages including less pain, faster recovery, and improved cosmetic outcomes.
The DaVinci Robotic Surgical System has revolutionized the minimally invasive approach to colon surgery. This breakthrough technology provides high definition 3-D visualization with proprietary EndoWrist instrumentation allowing 360 degree manipulation of the instruments. The DaVinci System seamlessly translates the surgeon’s hand movements into more precise movements.
Our physicians have currently performed more robotic colon resections than any other physician in the state. The ability to perform minimally invasive surgery in severe inflammatory disease not possible with traditional laparoscopy along with greater access, precision, and control for improved dissections employed by high definition 3-D visualization are just two benefits of robotic over traditional surgeries that have been demonstrated within our practice. Other benefits include excellent lymph node clearance in malignant disease, minimal blood loss, and a shorter hospital stay. Patients have been thrilled with the results.
Atlanta Colon and Rectal Surgery is the largest and oldest practice of its kind in Georgia, serving patients throughout metro Atlanta and the Southeastern United States for 40 years. Each of ACRS’s board certified surgeons is strongly committed to the highest quality of care and patient satisfaction. They specialize in the medical and surgical diseases of the intestine, colon, rectum, and anus.
ACRS surgeons perform minimally invasive colon resections, including Robotic and Laparoscopic techniques, and are national leaders in advancing post operative recovery. Patients have less pain, recover faster and easier, and have improved cosmetic outcomes after abdominal surgery.
ACRS physicians, more than any other type of physician, are best able to differentiate hemorrhoid disease from other anorectal conditions. They offer multiple treatment options for hemorrhoids (many of which are simple and painless) and are adept at diagnosing and treating all other anorectal conditions.
Additional fields of specialization include the latest treatments for fecal incontinence, constipation, rectal prolapse, diverticulitis, and Crohn’s diseases. ACRS physicians regularly perform screening and diagnostic colonoscopies.
