A new, highly advanced, flexible robotic system is allowing surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery and access hard-to-reach anatomy within the rectum and colon. 

"We are pleased to offer patients a less invasive procedure for faster recovery with minimized pain," said Colorectal Surgeon Warren Strutt, MD, the first physician to use the technology for this purpose in the region. "The flexible instrumentation and new 3D HD camera allow for unprecedented access and visualization of hard to reach lesions. This allows for excision of large polyps and early cancers that often require far less invasive procedures such as colon and rectal resections."
