Gallbladder surgery can be done using open surgery (through one large incision) or minimally invasively (through a few small incisions.) However, surgeons using da Vinci technology can remove the gallbladder through one small incision (cut) in the belly button using Single-Site* technology, or through a few small incisions.
Surgery win an HD, RD, magnified, totally immersed view.
This is a huge return of dexterity that was lost in laparoscopy.
Now surgeons can sit in the same supported, comfortable position for every case.
A special dye is injected into the patient. A builtin laser light is turned on and the dye glows! Now the surgeon can see incredible detail in the bowel vascularity or the bile ducts right through the other tissues.
Stable control of these technologies allows greater precision and control in the critical use of these devices.
With nearly 200% year-over-year growth since 2012, the procedure is on its way to becoming the new standard of care. More than 7,000 incisional/ventral hernias were done in 2015.
