Robotic surgery has improved the safety and efficiency of many types of surgeries, including removal of the gallbladder. Robotic-assisted systems like the Da Vinci system give surgeons a 3D view of the anatomy of the patient and more precise control with the surgical instruments. Dr. Dmitri Alden utilizes robotic surgical technology for many of his procedures, including robotic cholecystectomy.
Robotic cholecystectomy, or removal of the gallbladder, offers many advantages over open surgery or even laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Decades of research and trials went into creating these advanced robotic systems that can increase the safety of surgical procedures for the patient. During gallbladder removal surgery, Dr. Alden uses the surgeon console to view the high-definition, 3D images transmitted from inside the patient’s abdomen. The robotic system allows him to control the cutting-edge surgical instruments that can efficiently remove the gallbladder with enhanced precision. He has performed hundreds of robotic-assisted surgeries with excellent outcomes for his patients.
Advantages of Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Robotic cholecystectomy can offer many advantages for patients who require their gallbladder removed. The advanced imaging and surgical instruments improve the accuracy of the procedure when controlled by a seasoned surgeon such as Dr. Alden. The procedure is minimally invasive, with smaller incisions to access the gallbladder. Patients can usually go home within 24-48 hours after their surgery, reducing hospital stay lengths. The recovery is much shorter and less painful than open surgery, with fewer risks of infection or other complications.
Dr. Dmitri Alden has invested in the best technology and training to give his patients access to premier medical care. When possible, Dr. Alden utilizes robotic systems for his surgery procedures to improve the outcomes for his patients. In most cases, gallbladder removal surgery is safer with a higher success rate when performed with robotic assistance. However, Dr. Alden can also perform cholecystectomy using other surgical methods if needed.
If you have gallbladder disease that does not respond to other treatments, removal surgery may be recommended. Dr. Dmitri Alden offers cutting-edge robotic cholecystectomy as a minimally invasive and safer option for his patients. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Alden, contact our office in UES Manhattan.
