Robotic Surgery (Opioid Free)

General Surgeons Dr. Peter Caravella, Dr. Jimmy Xu, Dr. Yogesh Patel, Dr. Damon Schroer and Dr. Arthur Fusco specialize in Robotic Surgery that is opioid free.

Robotics within general surgery is helping to drive the growth of minimally invasive surgery. The procedures performed now range from inguinal and ventral hernia repair to cholecystectomies, foregut, and bariatric cases.

Robotic surgery provides surgical care that enables patients to recover more quickly and get back to what matters in their lives. 

  • National average of converting laparoscopic to open cholecystectomy is 5%, LVSA is .09%.
  • Inguinal Hernia Robot Assist requires narcotics less than 5% of the time.
  • Robot Assisted colon resection typically discharges in 0-3 days.

The Da Vinci by Intuitive Surgical System
Integrated technologies for robotic-assisted surgery

Designed to enhance surgeon capabilities

The da Vinci surgical system was one of the first robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgical systems cleared by the FDA.

Today, a family of da Vinci systems and technologies is used by surgeons in all 50 U.S. states and 67 countries around the world.

Continuous Innovation

Over 20 years, da Vinci platforms have pioneered new capabilities in the OR, transforming the field of minimally invasive surgery.

Through more than 5 million surgeries, Intuitive has become the proven leader in surgical robotics, increasing the adoption of minimally invasive surgery. And the innovation continues with a new generation of integrated systems and single port capabilities.

da Vinci platforms are committed to designing minimally invasive solutions that reduce variability in surgery and help deliver better care.

“We are proud to work with amazing technology that is less invasive and provides faster recovery time for our patients.” – Dr. Caravella
