da Vinci Surgery Q & A

What is da Vinci Surgery?

Da Vinci Surgery provides cutting-edge technology using robotics and 3D high-definition visual equipment. During da Vinci Surgery, Dr. Multack controls tiny surgical tools inside the body with a robotic wrist attachment that allows him to perform the most precise movements possible. The robot arm is much more precise and agile than the human hand, so it’s much more adept at reaching odd angles.

Da Vinci surgery requires only tiny incisions, leaving behind only nominal traces of the operation. The procedure is minimally invasive and precise, making it a great alternative to traditional surgery.

What are the benefits of da Vinci Surgery over traditional surgery?

Progressive technology makes da Vinci Surgery less invasive. Researchers have compiled an extensive body of evidence showing robotic surgery helps lessen blood loss, produces fewer complications, shortens hospital stays, reduces scarring, and accelerates recovery.

Any kind of surgery carries risks. However, da Vinci Surgery doctors are trained to minimize risk as much as possible.

Dr. Multack is masters trained in da Vinci Surgery, having undergone rigorous hands-on training. If you’re looking for a less invasive surgery option in the La Grange Highlands, Illinois area, contact Dr. Multack’s office today.

Am I a good candidate for da Vinci Surgery?

Dr. Multack most commonly uses Da Vinci Surgery to perform benign hysterectomies. Since a hysterectomy is straightforward and requires only a small incision, it’s the perfect candidate for da Vinci Surgery. Dr. Multack can also use robotic surgery for fibroids, pelvic prolapse, abnormal bleeding, endometriosis, and female cancers. It’s important to talk to him and consider all your options before you make a decision about treatment.

If a large incision is required, robotic surgery might not be the best choice. Large incisions are usually required to remove large tumors and advanced stage diseases. Any patient that isn’t a candidate for minimally invasive non-robotic surgery isn’t a good candidate for robotic surgery either.

Not all surgeries qualify for the da Vinci method. To see if you’re a good candidate for this kind of surgery, contact Dr. Multack’s office for a consultation.
