Minimally invasive surgery that’s even less invasive

Facing gallbladder surgery?

Surgeons at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center are the first in Southern Oregon to perform single-site da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery to remove a gallbladder.   

This revolutionary platform enables surgeons to remove a gallbladder with just one small incision through the belly button instead of making four incisions across the abdomen. The scar is virtually invisible because of its size and location — a big win for self-conscious patients worried about visible scarring.

Laparoscopy vs Single Site Da Vinci

If you have been told you need gallbladder surgery (known clinically as a cholecystectomy), ask your doctor to consider referring you for single-site da Vinci surgery.

The primary potential benefits* of single-site da Vinci surgery can include:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Minimal pain
  • Low blood loss
  • Lower infection risk
  • Faster recovery
  • Short hospital stay

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is unique to each patient and procedure.
