Dr. Dennis Orr specializes in Robotic Surgery in Youngstown Ohio using The da Vinci Surgical System.
It is designed to provide the surgeon with enhanced capabilities which include high-def 3D vision and more precise movements.
The robotic arms are controlled entirely by the surgeon at the console and can not act by themselves.
Different surgeons use the da Vinci for various reasons. Some use it to attempt surgeries that they do not have the knowledge or skill set to perform.
For me, the robot is a tool to supplement the skills and knowledge I obtained in a minimally invasive surgical fellowship.
It allows me to perform the surgeries that I have been doing for years easier.
Gallbladder surgery can be done through a single incision in the belly button. This can lead to a virtually scarless procedure.
