Your doctor will decide whether it is best to perform traditional open surgery or minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic surgery. Our surgeons are very experienced in minimally invasive techniques to treat colorectal cancer.
During minimally invasive surgery, small cuts are made in the abdomen. A tiny camera and surgical instruments are inserted through the cuts and the surgeon uses video imaging to perform the surgery. More recently our surgeons have been certified in the use of the robot to further improve the accuracy of the surgery.
