When surgical needs arise, you deserve to be comfortable with your surgical team.
Robotic surgery allows for significant benefits in the field of colon and rectal surgery.
Robotic Surgery Procedures
provide improved precision and control through small incisions. In addition, there is less handling of the patient’s intestines, which translates to a faster recovery after surgery. Robotic colon and rectal surgery also play an important role in the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program that is in place for our patients. This program is a concerted effort between surgeons, the anesthesia team, and hospital staff, which aims to help patients recover more quickly from surgery with less pain. Our outcomes after the robotic colon and rectal surgery are excellent. Since the implementation of our program at the
robotic surgery clinic
2015, we have seen reduced length of hospital stay and decreased complications for our patients.
Surgery in the upper abdomen near the junction of the esophagus and the stomach is an ideal area for the application of this technology. Robotic surgical instruments provide a wristed motion that mimics the human hand, but allows a greater range of motion that improves the ability to operate in small spaces. Inguinal surgery lends itself perfectly to the utilization of robotic procedures in the operating room.
Robotic-assisted surgerycan be used to treat all types of abdominal wall hernia problems. These include umbilical hernias, ventral and incisional hernias, epigastric hernias, supra-pubic hernias, and subxiphoid hernias.
Robotic-assisted surgery in Meridian, MSprovides some significant benefits to patients with these types of abdominal wall hernias, including smaller incisions and improved wound healing rates.
Robotic Gastric Sleeve
Dr. Daniel Denison has helped patients in the East Mississippi area lose over 2,000 pounds since launching a weight loss program here in Meridian. Working closely with the Meridian Weight Management Center, Dr. Denison has put together a team of providers, nurses, and educators to help patients achieve their weight loss goals. Not all patients require robotic surgery, but the leadership and resources that the surgeon provides are a critical part of this program. If you are interested in weight loss, call our robotic surgery clinic today to take the first steps toward a new, healthier you.
Dr. Denison is one of only two surgeons in the state of Mississippi to offer a surgical treatment option, including robotic surgery for patients who suffer from gastroparesis. Dr. Denison is able to perform this operation using robotic-assisted surgical techniques that minimizes pain and improves recovery time. Dr. Denison works closely with gastroenterologists to come up with a comprehensive treatment plan for his patients in order to ensure the best outcomes.
Robotic surgery is available for emergency surgery in addition to elective (planned) surgery. Some of the emergency procedures that can be performed using robotic surgery includes repair of intestinal perforation, emergency colon surgery, repair of diaphragm injuries, repair of incarcerated and strangulated hernias, and emergency gallbladder surgery. The same benefits of robotic surgery that includes smaller incisions and faster recovery times, are available for these patients, even in emergency situations.
