Less scarring and a quicker recovery
If your doctor recommends surgery, one of the minimally invasive procedures available at Emanuel Medical Center could mean a quicker recovery. Emanuel’s goal is to reduce your pain, risk of infections and scarring. Advanced techniques and equipment
make this possible with smaller incisions and other minimally invasive techniques.
With some procedures, patients can go home the same day or the next day after surgery. In many cases, they can return to work and other activities within a week or two.
Robotically Assisted Surgery
Discover the benefits of minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgery
This minimally invasive surgical system offers three-dimensional high definition visualization and allows for enhanced dexterity and greater precision and control for the surgeon. The surgeon is 100-percent in control of the robotic assisted da Vinci
System, which translates their hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. You benefit from our robotically assisted surgery in a number of ways including reduced trauma to the body, reduced
need for transfusions and better outcomes.
The da Vinci sets the standard in minimally invasive surgery. With da Vinci, you can experience:
- Less post-operative pain
- Faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less scarring
- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
Our specially trained surgical team uses da Vinci for procedures such as:
- Single-site gallbladder surgery
- General surgery
Years ago, large incisions were needed for many surgeries so that surgeons could reach — and see — the areas being treated. But today, nearly every part of the body is reachable using endoscopes.
These long, narrow tube devices can be inserted into the body through small incisions or through a natural opening such as the mouth or nose. The tube includes a light and sometimes a miniature camera. A surgeon can look directly through the scope or
at images transmitted to a video screen. Small surgical instruments also can be passed through the endoscope or through additional small incisions, eliminating the need for large incisions and the cutting of surrounding tissue.
