da Vinci Assisted Extended Right Hemicolectomy and End Ileostomy

Contributors: Jimmy Lin and  Craig Rezac

Robotic surgery offers benefits to both patient and surgeon by allowing smaller incisions and faster recovery time, to better accuracy, flexibility and control.  Many procedures which have previously been conducted with laparoscopy, or open surgery, are becoming further improved in robotic surgery. This video demonstrates once such procedure, the extended right hemicolectomy.

Robotic Assisted Repair of Morgagni Hernia

Contributors: Thomas Bauer, MD and Glenn Parker, MD

Up to 25 % of diaphragmatic hernias may be incidentally diagnosed in adulthood. If symptomatic, patients often present with epigastric pain, chest pain or persistent cough. When found, they should be repaired to prevent incarceration and strangulation.
