As you know, our group has been providing high-quality surgical services to northeast Tarrant county for over thirty years, particularly in the fields of general, vascular, and colon and rectal surgery. Since 2011, we have been using the da Vinci Surgical System (robotic surgery) for selected surgeries. With the da Vinci robot, the surgeon has more precise control over the instruments and a high-definition 3-D view for improved visualization of the surgical field.
We are excited to announce there is now a single-site platform for the da Vinci robot that allows gallbladder surgery to be performed through a single incision. This is of particular benefit for patients who wish to minimize the pain associated with the procedure and the appearance of scars, as the entire operation is performed through a single incision at the umbilicus.
Single-site gallbladder surgery is available through our practice at Texas Health Harris Methodist HEB Hospital and Baylor Grapevine Regional Medical Center. Currently doctors Bryan, Eaton, and Elieson are offering this to their new patients.
