Da Vinci Surgery Q & A

What is da Vinci surgery?

The da Vinci platform is the latest and most up-to-date surgical solution available. This state-of-the-art platform involves making just a few small incisions, rather than a long incision, as with a traditional open surgery.

During your procedure, Dr. Garbus inserts the robotic arms and surgical tools into the incisions. By viewing a screen and manipulating the robotic arms, he’s able to gather biopsies, make repairs, and remove damaged tissues.

Because da Vinci allows Dr. Garbus to closely monitor a high-definition screen, he’s able to get a clearer view of your internal structures. This helps Dr. Garbus make more precise repairs for a more effective surgical procedure. 

Why do I need da Vinci surgery?

In most cases, undergoing any type of surgical procedure is the absolute last resort. When you become a patient at the practice of Jules Garbus MD PC, you can expect comprehensive care and counseling about all treatment options, so you can stay involved in every step of your health care. 

If conservative treatments aren’t effective or if you have a serious condition that requires prompt intervention, Dr. Garbus could recommend da Vinci surgery. Using this minimally invasive solution, Dr. Garbus can:

  • Take biopsies of abnormal tissue
  • Treat infected pockets (diverticulitis)
  • Treat rectal prolapse 
  • Resection your bowels
  • Remove blockages
  • Repair ruptures

A da Vinci surgery may also be necessary to remove cancerous growths. In any case, because Dr. Garbus is a highly-skilled, board-certified colorectal surgeon, you can feel confident that you’re in entirely capable hands. 

What are the benefits of da Vinci surgery?

Opting for da Vinci surgery over other types of surgery provides several benefits. Dr. Garbus generally prefers this type of minimally invasive colorectal procedure because it:

  • Results in less bleeding
  • Helps you have faster recovery periods
  • Causes less postoperative pain 

Dr. Garbus is dedicated to ensuring your entire da Vinci surgical procedure is a success. He spends quality time with you at each visit before and after your surgery to ensure you receive the information you need and get answers to all of your questions.
