Marina Del Rey Hospital Is the First Los Angeles Area Hospital to Perform Single-Site Hysterectomy

Hospital Continues Its Leadership in Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Marina Del Rey Hospital, a 145-bed acute care surgical hospital, recently became the first hospital in the greater Los Angeles area to perform a highly specialized single-site hysterectomy. Board certified gynecological surgeon Dr. David Ghozland performed two procedures on April 28, 2014 with the da Vinci™ Si robotic system. He is currently the only gynecological surgeon in the Los Angeles area trained to perform this minimally invasive surgery.

"Marina Del Rey Hospital is committed to being at the forefront of new and advanced procedures that improve the patient experience, and we are proud to be the first area hospital to offer this less invasive surgery," said Dr. Ghozland. "We know some of the reasons women may hesitate to receive surgery to treat a condition include pain, scarring and long recovery times that may impact their daily routine. With our expertise in this single-site procedure, we are able to virtually eliminate scarring, lessen the recovery time, as well as potentially minimize pain compared to a traditional hysterectomy."

In the single-site hysterectomy, the naval is used as the surgical access point, resulting in little to no scarring, and patients are also typically able to go home within 24 hours of surgery. Fewer incisions may speed recovery time, reduce the chance of infection and other surgical complications, and potentially result in less pain for the patient.

The single-site surgery is performed via the da Vinci™ Si robotic surgery system, a technologically advanced robotic surgical assistance suite that the doctors at Marina Del Rey Hospital have expertly performed surgery with for more than 2 years. With this robotically assisted surgery system, all necessary instruments are incorporated into one assembly, easing the way for the doctor to perform procedures with better visibility and dexterity. With its high-definition 3-D camera, the surgeon has an up-close picture of the surgical site, displayed in astonishing detail. The surgeon manipulates the instruments while seated at a console, using controls that allow for intuitive, precise motions. The suite is programmed to analyze and stabilize even the tiniest gesture performed by the surgeon, resulting in more precise, fluid movements and a reduced risk of error during the procedure.

In addition to performing single-site hysterectomies, the surgeons at Marina Del Rey Hospital are trained to perform single-site cholecystectomy procedures. In fact, the hospital was the first in the area to offer the single-site cholecystectomy beginning in February 2013.
