TCRS is the top provider of robotic colorectal surgery in North Texas. We were the first to perform a single-site surgery in North Texas, and our certified specialists are frequently recruited to train other physicians in this breakthrough technology. Our exhaustive knowledge of robotic colorectal surgery is just one of the reasons we’re considered the best of the best.
Robotic colorectal surgery begins much like traditional laparascopic surgery. Once the patient is anesthetized, one of our certified robotic colorectal surgery specialists makes four tiny incisions, inserts trocars and inflates the abdominal cavity. The surgeon then docks the robotic unit — a four-armed device which operates a laparoscope and up to three specialized surgical instruments — into the trocars and moves to a separate console. Using a high-definition 3-D monitor and hand controls, your TCRS colorectal surgeon is then able to perform the operation with an unprecedented degree of precision and is always in complete control — the robot cannot move without instructions from the surgeon.
