Our surgeon, Dr. Sushil Pandey, has performed the highest robotic colon and rectal surgery in all 29 hospitals in Banner health system. The state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi can help surgeons to perform minimally invasive, complex surgeries.
Allowing surgeons at Banner Boswell to examine the surgical site more closely, the surgical robot utilizes 3D high definition robotic guided instruments. These instruments are guided through small incisions and then are able to bend in all directions, precisely mimicking the hand movements of the surgeon. This high tech capability provides access to tight and difficult-to-reach areas of the body that would otherwise require larger incisions in order to be accessible.
It may offer following advantages:
- Precise removal of cancerous tissue
- Low blood loss
- Quick return of bowel function
- Low rate of complications
- Low conversion rate to open surgery.
- Short hospital stay
- Better cosmetic result compared to open surgery
