Robotic surgery is the latest innovation in surgical technique that allows for less invasive procedures with greater precision than ever before. The da Vinci robotic system features special wristed instruments, high-definition 3D vision and magnified view to perform many different procedures with enhanced vision, control and accuracy. For our patients, the da Vinci robotic system means smaller incisions, less pain, fewer complications and shorter recovery times.
OPTIONS IN DA VINCI ROBOTIC SURGERY
At Missoula Surgical Associates, we offer options in da Vinci robotic surgery for the following procedures:
Gallbladder Surgery – Gallbladder removal can be performed with the help of the da Vinci robotic system. The procedure allows for removal of the gallbladder through a single, small incision in the belly button or through a number of tiny incisions in the abdominal area. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis and patients are usually back to regular activities within a few days.
Hernia Surgery – Hernia surgery can also be performed using the da Vinci robotic system. Incisions required for this procedure are very small, minimizing your discomfort and recovery after your procedure. In addition, patients who have hernia surgery using the da Vinci system may have a lower risk for recurrence of their hernia.
Colon Surgery – The da Vinci robotic system can also be used for colon surgery to treat a wide range of conditions, including colon cancer, rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and diverticulitis. The technique may be recommended for removing a portion of the colon or cancerous tissue, with smaller incisions and a shorter hospital stay.
The da Vinci robotic system brings the latest technology to surgeons, allowing them to operate with greater confidence and precision than ever before. The surgeons at Missoula Surgical Associates are well trained and highly experienced in da Vinci procedures, offering their patients another option in less invasive surgery, with less discomfort and downtime than traditional surgical procedures.
