General Surgery and the Single Site Approach
If you are having surgery to remove your gallbladder ( known as cholecystectomy) you may be exploring what surgical approach is best for you. The goal of minimally invasive general surgery is to offer patients a better approach to the previous traditional open surgical procedures. The benefits of robotic surgery include less pain, a shorter hospital stay, quicker recovery and ultimately a patient's faster return to daily activities.
Many of our robotic trained surgeons are using this system to now offer a single site approach where they make one small incision in your belly button to remove your gallbladder. The surgeon uses the daVinci system which translates his or her hand movements into more precise movements using tiny instruments inside your body. The daVinci robotic system features magnified 3D high definition vision system and the results enable your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision and precision.
