da Vinci Robotic Surgery
Lubbock Surgical Associates completed the first da Vinci single-site robotic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) in West Texas in January of 2013. This new approach reduces the traditional number of four port site incisions to only one incision at the umbilicus (belly button) that is less than one inch in length. Patients experience a more cosmetic procedure along with the potential for less postoperative pain.
The General Surgeons of Lubbock Surgical are also performing other minimally invasive surgical offerings. In addition to the gallbladder removal procedure, we also perform robotic colon surgery, robotic hernia repair, and robotic anti-reflux procedures.
