Colon Cancer is the third most common cancer in men and the second most common in women. Usually it has an insidious course. Especially if the rectal bleeding complaint is attributed to hemorrhoid and endoscopic examination is neglected, the disease can only be diagnosed in its advanced stages. It is most common between the ages of 50-75. Cancer is mostly seen in the left colon.
Robotic Surgery can be preferred as an application in the treatment of colon cancer and experience in this regard is very important. Since 2012, I have been treating colon and rectal cancer with robotic surgery on suitable patients.
Laparoscopic Surgery is the operations in which small holes (trocars) are opened in the abdominal wall using laparoscopic surgical instruments. It has an experienced team and large case series, especially in reflux surgery, bariatric surgery, colon surgery, and particularly difficult laparoscopic surgeries (patients who have had open surgery before with intra-abdominal adhesions, overweight, acute infections, etc.).
The surgical team, who has experience in Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery applications, can perform all laparoscopic operations with robotic surgery. With the development of robotic surgery, the use of robots is increasingly common in the treatment of surgical diseases. In many surgical applications, robotic surgery has ensured the successful performance of challenging manipulations in narrow areas thanks to the image quality and perfection in the use of surgical instruments.
And Everything to Know About Robotic Colon Cancer Surgery
To be able to perform major surgeries with minimal incisions on the patient.
Minimal blood loss due to the sensitive movements of surgical robotic equipment and the ability to control bleeding well.
Less pain due to small surgical incisions.
Very short hospital stay with rapid recovery after surgery.
The difficulty of open surgery in obese and overweight patients was eliminated with Da Vinci robotic surgery.
It is superior to open surgery and laparoscopic surgery with equipment that can offer better view and dexterity.
A very clear distinction of the surgical area thanks to the 3-dimensional view and the camera with manageable-augmentation feature.
The ability of robotic arms to perform all the functions that human hands can do thanks to the movement style similar to the human wrist.
Unintentional tremors of the human hand are not seen in robotic surgery.
As a result of the surgeon performing the surgeries sitting, increasing the comfort of the surgeon and eliminating the physical stress in long surgeries.

The word gastrointestinal means digestive system in Latin. Therefore, it describes the part from mouth to anus. However, today it describes the alimentary canal, stomach and small intestine surgery and hernia surgery. Especially stomach cancer and stomach diseases are the main topics. Half a century ago, gastric ulcer surgery was among the most common surgeries, but today it has become almost impossible to do with the discovery of very effective stomach drugs. However, with the improvements in life expectancy, and the increase in the elderly population and the use of painkillers, gastric ulcers and complication surgeries due to gastric perforation are increasing.
The colon, which is the hollow organ that occupies the largest part in the abdomen, has been neglected by us physicians for years. Recent studies and discoveries show that the colon is very effective not only in defecation, but also in our immunity and psychological state. In addition, it causes one of the most common cancers in both sexes in humans. It is estimated that this incidence will increase with each passing year. Industrial nutrition and increased chemicals on foods stimulate the development of colon cancer.
