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.
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.
