On Tuesday 15th June Mr Charles Evans, Colorectal Surgeon at King Edward VII’s Hospital, appeared on the television series Hospital on BBC Two.
On the show Mr Evans performed minimally invasive bowel surgery using a Da Vinci Xi robot. The Da Vinci Xi robot allows surgeons to perform complex minimally invasive surgical procedures with precision and accuracy.
Commenting on his participation in the show, Mr Evans said: “It was fantastic to have the opportunity to demonstrate how performing colorectal surgery robotically offers real benefits to our patients in terms of their recovery and the precision of the procedures for good cancer outcomes.”
