Robotic colorectal surgery is minimally invasive and requires just a few small incisions. The combination of a skilled surgeon and advanced technology yields a long list of potential benefits. Patients often experience less pain, have a faster recovery and quickly return to regular diet and bowel function. In addition, robotic surgeries reduce the length of hospital stays and the risk for major complications.
Our surgeons are among the most experienced robotic colorectal surgeons in the nation. Dr. Jorge Lagares is one of only four colorectal surgeons in the nation who has completed more than 1,000 robotic procedures, cementing his status as one of the country’s elite robotical surgeons.
Colorectal conditions treated with a robot include:
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease)
