In this video, Drs. Dean Pappas and Frank Caliendo introduce the Robotic Surgical Institute at Colon & Rectal Surgical Specialists of New York. Robotic surgery is far more precise than traditional techniques, leading to improved patient outcomes. The team at CRSSNY has performed more robotic surgeries than any other practice on Long Island.See more videos
The Da Vinci Xi
Although it may sound like something far into the future, robotic surgery is a safe and reliable technique that allows our colorectal surgeons to complete surgical procedures with the utmost precision.
During robotic surgery, our highly trained colorectal surgeons perform your procedure utilizing the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system. This state-of-the-art machine involves several robotic arms and instruments that our surgeons control from a nearby terminal. The robotic instruments are smaller, more precise, and more dexterous than human hands, allowing our physicians to complete the surgery with the smallest possible incisions, reduced chances of complications and the shortest hospital stay possible.
The CRSSNY surgeons are renowned experts in this technique and have performed more robotic colorectal surgeries than any other institution on Long Island. The CRSSNY surgeons are, in fact, pioneers utilizing this system, and surgeons come from all over the country to train and learn their advanced techniques.
