Imagine surgery with a smaller incision and less scarring. Minimally
invasive robotic surgery may mean less pain and quicker recovery times
when compared to traditional surgery, helping you get back to your life
sooner. MountainView Medical Group offers gynecologic robotic surgery performed by Ismael Lopez, M.D., Surjit Reddy Moolamalla, M.D., and Darwana Ratleff, M.D. and general robotic surgery offered by Leonard Metildi, M.D. We also offer cardiac robotic surgery performed by Robert Poston, M.D.
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open surgery, or even laparoscopic surgery. The surgeon controls the "arms" of the robot from a sophisticated, 3-D console. Because the robotic arms are smaller than your surgeon's hands, incisions are much smaller and your surgeon has great range of motion while operating.
Traditional robotic surgery is performed using 3 or 4 small incisions, one for each robotic arm and a camera. Single site robotic surgery is performed with just one small incision, inside of your belly button. Currently, hysterectomies and gall bladder surgeries are able to be performed using a single incision.
