da Vinci Surgery
The da Vinci surgical system is the latest advancement in minimally invasive surgical technology.
The da Vinci Surgical System is used in patient treatments and allows for improved recovery time, less risk of complications and can perform procedures much faster than conventional surgery. Dr. Shyam Dahiya is a leading expert in the use of the da Vinci surgical system and robotic surgery. Along with his 30+ years of experience as a weight loss surgeon, Dr. Dahiya continues to implement the most advanced surgical practices to offer his patients the highest level of care. It is our goal to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients and utilizing the new da Vinci surgical system we can do just that.
The da Vinci Surgical System is designed to overcome the limitations of manual laparoscopy with enhanced capabilities, including High Definition 3D vision and a magnified view. Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.
Though it is often called a “robot,” da Vinci cannot act on its own – the surgery is performed entirely by your doctor. Together, the da Vinci System and Single-Site™ instruments allow your doctor to perform gallbladder surgery through a single incision. As a result, you may be able to get back to your life without the recovery or scars that usually follow major surgery.
The da Vinci System has been used successfully worldwide in hundreds of thousands of procedures to date.
The primary potential benefits* of Single-Site da Vinci Surgery include:
- Minimal scarring
- Minimal pain
- Low blood loss
- Fast recovery
- Short hospital stay
- High patient satisfaction
As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.
Based on the smaller incisions and quicker surgery times, the level of treatment is improved and there is also less potential for damage to the surrounding tissue and organs in the body. All of this means that the surgery will be more successful and that the patient will have a faster recovery time, less pain and ultimately an improved outcome.
