What is Robotic Surgery?
Our surgeons use a robotic device called the da Vinci System for technical assistance and patient benefits. The robotic device does not operate on its own, only through use by our experienced surgeons. During surgery, Dr. Doucette or Dr. Foreman manipulate four robotic arms that bend and rotate beyond a hand’s capability, allowing greater control and precision while protecting the surrounding tissues. Robotic technique may be used in weight loss procedures such as gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, as well as for general surgery procedures such as anti-reflux and hernia surgeries.View Video
