If you need surgery to treat your gastrointestinal condition, you may be a candidate for robotic surgery — a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci® Surgical System allows your doctor to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical technology, doctors have an effective alternative to traditional open and laparoscopic surgery that offers patients the best of both approaches: da Vinci Surgery. With the assistance of the da Vinci® Surgical System, surgeons can operate through tiny incisions with greater vision, precision, dexterity and control than ever before.
Minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery is used for, among other things, the following gastrointestinal procedures:
- Surgery for Stomach Cancer
- Surgery for Obesity
- Surgery for Gallbladder Disease & Stones
- Surgery for Pancreatic Cancer and Pancreatitis (Benign Disease)
- Surgery for Achalasia (swallowing disorder)
