Healthy Living: Tumor Removal

Patients with colon tumors, or colorectal cancer, may sometimes face a difficult treatment depending upon the location and size of the lesion.

In Healthy Living, we show you how a newly FDA-approved flex robotic scope is helping colorectal surgeons see and remove tumors in a minimally-invasive way. 

Although Kelly’s tumor was benign, surgeons can use the robot for the removal of cancerous lesions.

Dr. Salgado says patients with advanced rectal cancer are not good candidates for this surgery right now, but it may be an option in the future.
