Centennial Medical Center's Surgeons Offer Minimally Invasive Procedures through Belly Button Incision with da Vinci® System

FRISCO, Texas, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The surgical team at Centennial Medical Center, Frisco, TX is proud to provide patients with some of the most minimally invasive surgical options, including the single-incision, robotic-assisted procedure using the da Vinci® Surgical System. During a da Vinci® Single-Site surgery, one tiny incision is made in the belly button, approximately one inch long, resulting in a virtually scar-free procedure.

The Food and Drug Administration cleared the specialized Single-Site instruments for use with the da Vinci Surgical System in December 2011. Since introducing the technology at Centennial Medical Center, surgeons are able to offer procedures that have a faster recovery rate, less time lost from work, low blood loss and less pain during recovery.

To offer this technically advanced surgery demonstrates Centennial Medical Center's leadership in providing patients with the most minimally invasive surgical options.

During the procedure, the surgeon sits comfortably at a console, viewing a 3D, high-definition image of the patient's anatomy. The surgeon uses controls below the viewer to move the instrument arms and camera. In real-time, the system translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into more precise movements of the miniaturized instruments inside the patient.

Unlike traditional robotic surgeries requiring three to five small incisions, this technology allows for a single incision in the belly button where instruments are placed and the procedure progresses.

Potential benefits of Single-Site surgery may include virtually scar-free surgery, minimal pain, low blood loss, fast recovery, a short hospital stay and high patient satisfaction.

Potential risks include conversion to other surgical techniques and multiple incisions. All surgery presents risk, including da Vinci Surgery. Serious complications may occur in any surgery, up to, and including, death. Other risks include injury to tissues and organs.

Centennial Medical Center offers various types of robotic-assisted surgeries at its Frisco, TX location. In addition, Centennial Medical Center also offers a wide range of minimally invasive conventional laparoscopic surgeries.
