General Surgery

There are a wide range of conditions affecting abdominal organs and tissues that general surgeons treat using da Vinci Surgery. Among these are: colon and rectal cancer, morbid obesity, stomach cancer, pancreatic disease and achalasia (swallowing disorder). Collectively, these conditions impact millions of people around the world.

  • Colorectal cancer is the 3rd most deadly and 4th most common cancer globally 
  • Stomach cancer is the second most deadly cancer worldwide1
  • Smokers are 2 to 3 times more likely to get pancreatic cancer
  • An estimated 300 million people around the world are obese; in the U.S. alone, 72 million people are obese ,

 

Minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery enables surgeons to operate through a few tiny incisions instead of a long incision used for traditional open surgery. State-of-the-art da Vinci Surgery provides your doctor with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control, while offering patients many potential benefits as compared to traditional surgery, such as:

  • Excellent outcomes for cancer control
  • Quick return of bowel function
  • Fast return to oral nutrition
  • Low blood loss
  • Minimal surgical trauma
  • Low risk of complications
  • Short hospital stay
  • Fast recovery
