Robotic Surgical Services: General Surgery

Northwest Hospital surgeons perform many general surgery procedures using the da Vinci system. The da Vinci system offers a less-invasive approach to traditional surgery and allows the surgeon greater precision and an increased range of motion. The patient's pain and risk are reduced, and their likelihood of a quick recovery and superior clinical results are increased.

Procedures performed using the da Vinci robot at Northwest Hospital include:

  • Cholecystectomy – Gallbladder removal (single-incision)
  • Colon resection – Removal of all or part of the large intestine
  • Ventral hernia repair – Treatment of hernia in the abdomen
  • Hiatal hernia repair – Treatment of a condition in which part of the stomach moves above the diaphragm
  • Acid reflux surgery – Treatment to prevent stomach acid from leaking into the esophagus
  • Lysis of adhesions – Removal of internal scar tissue
  • Splenectomy – Removal of the spleen
  • Adrenalectomy – Removal of one or both adrenal glands
  • Gastrectomy – Removal of all or part of the stomach
  • Esophagectomy – Removal of all or part of the esophagus
