King Edward VII’s Hospital Launches UK-Leading Robotic Colorectal Service

Independent private hospital King Edward VII’s has launched a new colorectal robotics surgery service, designed to offer patients the latest innovative treatment options for colorectal conditions.

The service is being delivered by the Precision Surgery Group, lead by four of the UK’s leading colorectal surgeons. This will bring the latest robotic and digital technologies to a highly regarded central London hospital, enabling the delivery of ultra-precise, minimally invasive procedures with improved outcomes for patients with colorectal cancers, benign colorectal conditions and hernias.

The team includes two of the UK’s most experienced surgeons in the field of colorectal robotics, Mr Danilo Miskovic and Mr Charles Evans, both proctors, who are renowned for teaching other surgeons and setting standards around the world.

Between them the team has performed over 500 major robotic colorectal procedures and so can utilise a wealth of data to provide the best possible clinical outcomes for patients. Working with the hospital’s state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi robot and skilled surgical and nursing teams, the service delivers the highest quality surgery with faster recovery times, less pain and discomfort, fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay for patients.

Consultant colorectal surgeon Mr James Kinross said: “As surgeons we are always striving for the best possible outcomes for our patients, and we strongly believe that this means using a digital, data-driven approach, as well as the best in surgical expertise and robotic technologies”.

Mr Alexander Von Roon is the clinical director for general surgery at King Edward VII’s. He said:

“Coming together as a team to deliver this service provides specific advantages. Not only does it improve the quality of care, but it allows us to collect important outcomes data using new digital technologies. This is a key teaching tool that not only aids us in driving innovation safely forward, but it standardises best practice and most importantly, improves the quality of our patients’ lives as well as their outcomes.

Lindsey Condron, chief executive at King Edward VII’s Hospital commented: “The establishment of our new colorectal robotics service combines the latest technology with the UK’s leading colorectal experts. This investment will improve patient outcomes and further enhance quality and safety.  The new service is part of a broader plan for the hospital, strengthening King Edward VII’s Hospital’s reputation as a centre of excellence in key clinical specialities.

“At King Edward VII’s we are committed to ensuring clinical and surgical excellence for our patients, as well as setting standards in colorectal robotics for years to come.”
