Visceral and robotic surgery

Surgery using robots allows for minimally invasive operations on the digestive tract and greater precision.

Top-of-the-line surgery

The da Vinci robot permits minimally invasive surgical procedures that are very precise, thanks to tri-dimensional imaging. The method gives the surgeon more scope than conventional methods. It is mainly used to treat obesity (installation of a gastric bypass). Anti-reflux surgery, ganglion curage and some colon cancers can also be treated with robotic surgery. Use of the robot results in far more unobtrusive scars than conventional surgery, because the operations are done through small incisions. The robot's precision also means more precise sutures and finer dissections. Its great precision also limits the risk of infections and more rapid post-operative recovery.
