New Jersey Robotic Surgery
Minimally invasive robotic surgery enables surgeons to operate through a few tiny incisions instead of a long incision used for traditional open surgery. Using the state-of-the-art da Vinci Surgery System provides your doctor with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control, while offering patients many potential benefits as compared to traditional surgery, such as:
- Excellent outcomes for cancer control
- Quick return of bowel function
- Fast return to oral nutrition
- Low blood loss
- Minimal surgical trauma
- Low risk of complications
- Short hospital stay
- Fast recovery
Single Incision Robotic Surgery
Stephen G. Pereira, M.D. and Associates performs Single Incision Robotic Gallbladder Surgery. Dr. Pereira performs single incision robotic cholecystectomy at Hackensack UMC in Hackensack, New Jersey and at Hackensack UMC at Pascack Valley in Westwood, New Jersey.
Single Incision Robotic Surgery provides enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control, while offering patients many potential benefits as compared to traditional surgery.
How Robotic Single Incision Surgery Works
During the procedure, Dr. Pereira sits at a console viewing 3-D, high-definition video and images while using controls below the display to move robotic arms with attached surgical instruments.
Unlike traditional robotic surgeries, Single Incision Robotic Cholecystectomy allows for a single incision at the belly button where the diseased gallbladder is removed laparoscopically.
Benefits of Single Incision Robotic Surgery
Benefits of the single-incision surgery can include minimal scarring, less pain, less bleeding, faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay, enhancing quality and safety and improving patient satisfaction.
