Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery is the latest cutting edge surgical technique that is being increasingly used in multiple general surgical procedures especially hernia repair, gallbladder surgeries and colorectal surgery.

During robotic surgery with the da Vinci surgical system the surgeon makes several small incisions, then uses a 3DHD camera for a crystal-clear magnified view of your underlying surgical condition. Every hand movement Dr. Raghavan makes is translated by the da Vinci surgical system in real-time, bending and rotating the advanced instruments so that he can repair your underlying condition.

Benefits to patients:

  • Quicker recovery
  • Less invasive
  • Significantly less post-operative pain with minimal use of opioids
  • Fewer complications

Dr. Raghavan uses the above technique in various operative procedures including:

  • Ventral hernia
  • Inguinal hernia
  • Umbilical hernia
  • Cholecystectomy (Gallbladder surgery)
  • Colon resections
