Memorial Hospital Belleville and Memorial Hospital Shiloh both offer minimally invasive surgery using a robotic surgical system.
This advanced technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand providing additional clinical benefits and efficiency in the operating room—many of which translate into added benefits for the patient. During a minimally invasive procedure using the robotic system, surgeons are 100% in control of the system, which offers high-definition 3D views and small, precise hand movement using advanced instruments. All of this may mean less pain and faster recovery for most patients when compared to conventional surgical techniques.
Memorial offers this advanced, minimally invasive surgical technique for the following:
- Hernias (inguinal, hiatal, ventral, and umbilical)
- Colorectal disease
- Prostate cancer
- Biliary disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease
