This surgical procedure destroys a group of cells in the internal globus pallidus, the major area from which information leaves the basal ganglia.
Treatments for Surgical Care
Peripheral vascular surgery can be performed as an endarterectomy procedure, a technique used to remove the plaque buildup inside of the blocked artery.
Weight-loss surgery is typically very effective when patients follow their dietary and exercise plans, but in 20-30 percent of cases, these procedures may not produce lasting weight loss results and regaining weight may occur.
The robotic surgical system uses robotic computer technology providing breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities that offer many benefits.
During a robotic-assisted cholecystectomy procedure (removal of the gallbladder), the surgeon retracts the gallbladder and dissects the cystic artery and cystic duct. Since visualization of the gallbladder and surrounding structures are clearly seen, surgery is done accurately and safely.
When minimally invasive interventions such as cardiac catheterization or valvuloplasty are not an option to treat congenital heart disease, a pediatric or adult heart care physician may recommend robotic assisted surgery as the best course for treatment.
A robotic-assisted Gastrectomy procedure is performed by making four small incisions – one 12 mm incision at the patient’s belly button, and three 8mm incisions at the upper abdomen.
The da Vinci® Si Surgical System (da Vinci) uses robotic computer technology providing breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities that offer greater surgical benefits.
Robotic-assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.
Inguinal hernia repair is a surgery to repair a hernia in the abdominal wall of the groin. A hernia is tissue that bulges out of a weak place in the abdominal wall. In some cases, the intestines may also bulge out in the weakened area.
Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System reduces the risks associated with the use of the heart-lung machine—cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and allows for a faster recovery.
