Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgery
What is da Vinci Surgery?
da Vinci Surgery is a minimally invasive option for patients facing abdominal or gastrointestinal surgery. Instead of a large abdominal incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make a few small incisions – smaller to traditional laparoscopy. However, the da Vinci System features a magnified 3S high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that ben and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
If you have severe gallbladder symptoms, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder. It can be performed using open surgery through a large incision or with minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy).
Tradition laparoscopy and multi-port da Vinci Surgery, surgeons operate through a few small incisions. With Single incision traditional laparoscopy and da Vinci Sing-Site Surgery, your surgeon operates through one small incision in the navel (belly button).
