Low Anterior Resection (LAR)

Robotic low anterior resection (LAR) is performed at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to surgically treat tumors in the upper part of the rectum, where it joins the colon. In this procedure, part or all of the rectum is removed and the colon is then surgically reattached to the remaining rectum or anus.

The robotic approach is proving well-suited to low anterior resection, since the excellent visualization and precise control provided by the da Vinci S® surgical robot can help facilitate the complex dissection and suturing of tissue involved in this procedure.
