Da Vinci Single Site Surgery
Dr. Bobby David, MD, general surgeon at Washington Adventist Hospital, explains the benefits of a single site surgery with the Da Vinci console both for the surgeon and the patient. This technology allows the the surgeon to be positioned away from the patient yet still be in control of the instruments. In addition, only one incision takes places as compared to the 4-5 laparascopic incisions in a standard surgery. For the patient, less incisions and less bleeding result in a faster recovery time.
