Less Invasive, Less Painful & Faster Recovery… With Our Robotic Surgery Techniques

CARI Colon and Rectal Surgeons are trained and certified to perform leading edge robotic-assisted surgery.

As top surgeons in the field of colon and rectal surgery, our physicians understand the importance of maintaining the highest standard of patient care. It is the goal of CARI physicians to continue to learn new technologies in efforts to provide our patients with the newest minimally invasive surgical techniques in the field. Using the da Vinci® Surgical System gives us a level of operating precision that before now has been impossible in laparoscopic procedures.

CARI offers Minimally Invasive Robotic Assisted Surgery Using The da Vinci® System

Dr. David Bub of CARI has one of the largest experiences in the Lehigh Valley performing robotic surgery for colon cancer, diverticulitis and rectal prolapse. He has performed over 50 robotic cases within the last two years alone with exceptional outcomes.

Call our office to ask Dr. Bub if you are a candidate for a robotic procedure.

What Is Robotic Surgery?

Similar to laparoscopic surgery, small incisions are made providing a portal for the instruments to be inserted allowing the surgical procedure to be performed inside the abdominal cavity. The da Vinci robotic system, however, affords several key surgical advantages over standard laparoscopic techniques.

  • A 3D magnified image allowing for better visualization.
  • Articulating wristed instruments allow for precise movements in limited spaces
  • The ability to perform surgery within limited spaces like the pelvis for rectal surgery.
  • The ability to perform the intestinal anastomosis (or connection) inside the abdomen.
  • Potentially smaller risk for incisional hernias.

What Are The Benefits Of Robotic Surgery?

  • Smaller incisions / smaller scars
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain / less pain medicine requirements
  • Shorter hospital stays / faster recovery
  • Less wound infections
  • Less hernias
  • Quicker return to normal bowel functions
