DRB MEDIA COMMUNICATIONS DIGITAL NEWS-NEWS BRIEF 91317-DA VINCI ROBOTIC SURGICAL SYSTEM

ODESSA, TEXAS/WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 – THE DI VINCI ROBOTIC SURGICAL SYSTEM USES A MORE DEFINED LAPAROSCOPIC TECHNIQUE, A TECHNIQUE THAT IS KNOW AS MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY. THIS TECHNIQUE IS VERY PERCISE, AND  IS PERFORMED FAR FROM THEIR LOCATION THROUGH SMALL INCISIONS USUALLY 0.5-1.5 CM, AND THIS PROCEDURE HAS A GREAT BENEFIT TO THE PATIENT.

(DR. DON DAVENPORT, D.O., GENERAL SURGERY)

“WHAT THIS AFFORDS US TO DO IS TO ALLOW PATIENTS TO RECOVER MUCH QUICKER, EVEN QUICKER THAN LAPOSCOPIC SURGERY. IT ALLOWS US TO GET THEM BACK TO DOING ACTIVITY QUICKER WITH LESS PAIN.”

THIS ROBOTIC SYSTEM IS IN IT’S INFANCY ACROSS THE NATION, THOUGH LARGER HOSPITALS HAVE MORE THAN ONE ROBOT TO BENEFIT THEIR PATIENTS. MANY DOCTORS AND SURGEONS STILL USE THE TRADITIONAL LAPOSCOPIC SURGERY, AND HAVE NOT CONVERTED TO ROBOTIC SURGERY. MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL HAS HAD THE DI VINCI SURGICAL SYSTEM FOR SEVERAL YEARS. MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL SURGEONS ARE ADDING SURGICAL PROCEDURES REGULARLY TO MAXIMIZE PROFECIENCY.

(DR. DON DAVENPORT, D.O., GENERAL SURGERY)

“WE’RE SEEING MUCH MORE BENEFITS FROM THE PROCEDURE, WE’RE DOING MUCH MORE WITH THE ROBOT, THAN WE’VE EVER DONE. AS WE DO MORE, WE SEE MORE BENEFITS.”

ONE OPTION THAT IS BEING OFFERED BY DOCTORS IS ROBOTIC ASSISTED SURGERY TO REPAIR A VENTRAL HERNIA, THAT IS, WHEN TISSUE PUSHES THROUGH AND OPENING IN THE ABDOMEN OR INGUINAL HERNIA IN THE GROIN AREA. THE GOAL OF THE SURGEON USING THE DA VINCI SURGICAL SYSTEM IS TO MINIMIZE PAIN AND A QUICKER RECOVERY.

(DR. DON DAVENPORT, D.O., GENERAL SURGERY)

“SO, HERNIAS, GENERALLY ARE MUCH EASIER TO FIX WHEN THEY’RE SMALL AS OPPOSED TO WHEN THEY’RE LARGER, AND AGAIN WITH A SYSTME LIKE THIS, AND THE ABILITY TO FIX THINGS EARLIER, AGAIN WE IMPACT PATIENTS DRAMTICALLY NOT JUST A MEDICAL STAND POINT, BUT ALSO A FINACIAL STAND POINT FOR THEM.”

THERE WILL BE A FREE HERNIA SCREENING OFFERED SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2017 FROM 10AM TO 11:30AM AT THE MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL CONE BUILDING-THE BLACK GLASS BUILDING ON THE CORNER OF 3RD AND ALLEGHANEY.
