Sharp HealthCare offers a less-invasive treatment option for patients who need colectomies (surgical removal of part of or the entire colon). By using the da Vinci® Si HD™ Robotic Surgical System, surgeons make fewer and smaller incisions instead of one large incision.
Robotic surgery provides physicians with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy while providing patients with an effective, less-invasive surgical treatment option.
