The Da Vinci Robot is a tool that is directly controlled by the surgeon. While it is quite sophisticated, it is no different than the other tools that we use in surgery. This technology allows us to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures with greater precision and safety, by providing us with improved visualization and dexterity.
Our surgeons at Montrose Surgical Associates utilize the Da Vinci tool for a variety of procedures including:
- Hernia Repair, both Inguinal and Hiatal
- Gallbladder Surgery
- Colon Surgery
Patient advantages to using the Da Vinci Robot for minimally invasive surgical procedures include:
- Shorter Hospital Stays
- Shorter Recovery Time-Return to regular activities quicker
- Fewer Surgical Complications
- Often Less Post-Operative Pain.
