Robotic and Laparoscopic colon and rectal resection: In these operations, small incisions are used to remove the diseased portion of colon or rectum. In an additional advance, the anastomosis or reconnection of the bowel, is now also performed through these small incisions greatly reducing the size of incision needed to remove the specimen. In some cases, the portion of colon removed can even be removed though the anus, eliminating the need for a larger incision altogether.
