Robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision, flexibility and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery — procedures performed through tiny incisions.
Single Incision & Scarless Surgery
Single incision surgery, is an advanced, minimally invasive technique that allows the surgeon to operate exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s navel. This results in one single incision which often is not visible because it is hidden within the navel. Hence, the term scarless surgery. In traditional laparoscopic surgery, a telescopic rod connected to a video camera or laparoscope is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen. Three to five additional incisions are made and used as ports, where the other necessary surgical instruments are inserted. There are different ways that single incision is performed. Laparoscopic, Spider platform and Single Incision Robotic Surgery are all procedures that we offer. You may find out if you are a candidate by contacting us for a consultation.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more common in hospitals. These procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening. Because the incisions are small, patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort than with conventional surgery — all with the same benefits.
Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) removes the gallbladder through several small cuts (incisions) in the abdomen. There may also be a special X-ray procedure called intraoperative cholangiography, which shows the anatomy of the bile ducts.
If you’re overweight and have not been able to lose the weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, then surgery might be the best option for you. Surgery is usually for men and women who are on average 100lbs overweight. However, medical problems such as hypertension, diabetes and sleep apnea, to name a few, are all comorbidities that may qualify you for the surgery.
Surgery is the oldest type of cancer therapy and remains an effective treatment for many types of cancer today. The goals of surgery vary. It is often used to remove all or some of the cancerous tissue after diagnosis.
In minimally-invasive hernia repair, a surgeon uses a laparoscope—a thin tube with a tiny video camera at its tip—and small tools to fix a hernia. During all kinds of laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon is guided by images projected on a television monitor.
