Study Summary

This trial is for adult patients who need a right hemicolectomy, which is a surgery to remove part of the large intestine. The surgery will be done using a minimally invasive approach, which means either through tiny incisions with a robotic arm or through a laparoscope. The anastomosis is where the two ends of the intestine are reconnected.
