Robotics allow Dr. Buzad to treat a wider range of conditions and patients than other surgical techniques.
“A key part of my extensive experience with robotics is knowing when to use robotics and when to use other surgical techniques.”
Conditions we treat include:
- Colorectal diseases
This group of diseases includes colon cancer, diverticulitis, and colostomy reversal
Including: Hiatal, incisional, and ventral
- GERD / Reflux disease
- Gallbladder diseases
Including: cholecystistis, gallstones
- GIST tumors (of the stomach)
- Adrenal tumors
Questions about insurance?
Robotic procedures are billed to insurance companies the same as laparoscopic procedures, so the cost of the procedure is the same.
Because patients who undergo robotic procedure to treat conditions typically have a faster recovery, patients, especially those treated for colorectal diseases, may actually see their total bill decrease because of a shorter hospital stay.
If you have specific questions about how robotics procedures are covered, contact your insurance carrier or your plan administrator.
