Single Incision Robotic Surgery - NEW!

First Surgical is utilizing a revolutionary new method for single incision gall bladder surgery. Dr. Steve Stanten, utilizing the da Vinci robot at Summit Hospital, is the only surgeon in the area performing this cutting-edge surgery.

This new approach enables the surgeon to make only one incision in the belly button. Previously, at least four incisions were required for gall bladder surgery. The new method also dramatically improves the cosmetic appearance of scars, and greatly reduces recovery time.  With the da Vinci robotics system, curved robotic arms allow the surgeon to perform the work using the same incision.The majority of patients go home the same day as the surgery.

Da Vinci System

The da Vinci® Surgical System combines computer and robotic technologies to create a new category of surgical treatment, robotic-assisted laparoscopic, thoracoscopic or endoscopic surgery. By providing surgeons with enhanced capabilities, it's possible treat a broader range of conditions using a minimally invasive approach. This means that with da Vinci, you can have major surgery with only a few tiny incisions. In addition, your surgeon can operate with better visualization, precision, dexterity and control than possible using traditional surgical approaches.

In short, the da Vinci Surgical System combines robotics and surgical technology as never before, enabling your surgeon to provide the most effective and least invasive treatment option available for a wide range of complex conditions. Recovery time is reduced and the surgeon can perform surgery with fewer incisions.
