P. Jeffrey Ferris, MD, Chief of Colon and Rectal Surgery, and David Lisle, MD, Colon and Rectal Surgeon
Robotic technology allows our colorectal surgeons to operate with extreme precision. Areas of the intestines or colon that may difficult or even impossible to reach with the human hand are now accessible with use of the robotic system; its “arms” can rotate up to 280 degrees. All of this translates to a better experience, as well as outcomes, for you, as the patient.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery for Patients
Patients who have undergone colorectal robotic surgery may tell you the recovery process is greatly simplified, and much easier than what they expected. Blood loss during the procedure is reduced. Post-operation pain is minimized. Most find that their hospital stay, recovery period, and time away from work or normal, day-to-day activities, is much shorter.
MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center’s investment in robotic surgical tools positions us “ahead of the curve” when it comes to the integration of technology in our day-to-day work. And along with that, some of the region’s most skilled surgeons are part of our colorectal team; doctors who offer second-to-none clinical capabilities, and who are also truly committed to serving as leaders in today’s evolving world of medicine.
