Robotic Digestive System Surgery

The digestive system is a system that starts from the mouth and ends with the anus, and includes the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, pancreas and gall bladder. The surgical treatment of benign and malignant diseases of these organs in the digestive system is also called digestive system surgery.  Digestive system surgery may be necessary for a variety of reasons. For example, reflux disease, stomach cancer, chronic digestive system diseases such as ulcers, polyps, diverticulum or Crohn's disease, metabolic diseases such as obesity or type 2 diabetes, and injuries resulting from trauma.

The surgery option may vary depending on the patient's condition and the type of surgical procedure. For example, as a surgical option for stomach cancer, surgical procedures such as gastric resection (partial or complete) or gastrectomy (removal of the stomach) may be done. As a surgical option for obesity, surgical procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or bilio-pancreatic diversion surgery can be performed.

Digestive system surgery can provide a significant improvement or increase in quality of life, but like any surgical procedure, it can involve risks. For example, general surgical complications such as bleeding, infection, thromboembolism, anesthesia complications, digestive system complications such as temporary or permanent digestive disorders, malabsorption or diarrhea, especially for digestive system surgery. Therefore, patients selected for gastrointestinal surgery should be informed about the surgical procedure and risks, and should be followed up regularly before and after the surgical procedure.

Thanks to the increasing experience and technological advances in laparoscopic surgery, many digestive system surgeries are performed successfully with closed methods today. Robotic surgery, which is the most advanced technological development of laparoscopic surgery today, provides important advantages such as less bleeding and faster recovery in surgical diseases of the digestive system.
