Surgery is one of the primary methods for the removal of colorectal cancers. Various surgeries are performed based on the location of cancer and its spread. Due to many shortcomings of extensively invasive procedures, laparoscopy was invented to visualize cancer perfectly and later remove that tumor. However, some technical difficulties were observed, and the physiological complexity of the tumour site caused this method to fail. Later, the FDA announced the approval of a surgical system operated by a team of specialists. This system has more enhanced precision compared to conventional treatments, showing increased efficacy.
