da Vinci ® General Surgery Procedures

Your surgeon has a new assistant with high-definition, three-dimensional vision, numerous metal arms and controls that allow for precise movements: the da Vinci Surgical System.

Also known as robotic-assisted surgery, the state-of-the-art da Vinci system enables your surgeon to access inner portions of your body using the tiniest of incisions with minimal damages to the surrounding delicate blood vessels and organs. This advancement represents the latest techniques in surgery and is a step above minimally invasive surgery because it involves making even smaller incisions and reducing overall trauma to the body as well as recovery time.

The da Vinci Surgical System is revolutionizing a number of general surgery procedures that can be used to repair or remove problematic organs, such as the gallbladder and pancreas.

Examples of general surgery procedures performed at miVIP surgery centers include:

Single-Port Cholecystectomy: Also known as gallbladder removal, single-port cholecystectomy using da Vinci can be performed to remove a blocked gallbladder, one with significant gallstones or a porcelain gallbladder where cells have calcified. The single-port approach means your surgeon uses only one incision via your navel to access and remove the gallbladder. The result can be a nearly scarless surgery that can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Heller Myotomy: The da Vinci Heller myotomy procedure is used to treat achalasia, a rare esophageal condition that affects your ability to swallow. When you cannot swallow food and drinks, you can experience life-threatening weight loss, weakness and fatigue. The da Vinci Heller myotomy surgical approach helps to loosen and widen the muscles in your lower esophageal sphincter. The procedure can often provide a lasting solution that relieves painful achalasia symptoms.

See the da Vinci Difference

General surgery procedures using the da Vinci system offer differences you can both see and feel. The da Vinci platform affords your surgeon better views into your anatomy and improved dexterity while accessing your abdominal cavity. The world-class surgeons at miVIP Surgery Centers have undergone specialized training to be able to perform these intricate procedures for patients’ benefits and reduced recovery times.

See: Procedures using da Vinci technology involve making tiny keyhole-like incisions and inserting pencil-thin instruments. In many instances, da Vinci general surgery is scarless surgery, presenting less of a cosmetic alteration than traditional open or even minimally invasive procedures.

Feel: Patients who undergo da Vinci general surgery procedures typically experience less post-operative pain and bleeding following surgery. Robotic-assisted miVIP surgery also reduces recovery time and requires no hospitalization. While da Vinci general surgery procedures may change your life and improve your health, they won’t have you missing out on life and work with long recovery times.
