Abdominal and GYN surgeries have evolved over the years from large, open incisions to multi-incison laparoscopy. Today, Memorial Hospital of Converse County is among a handful of surgery centers able to perform single-site surgeries through the belly button, reducing outpatient recovery times, blood loss, and pain.
The da Vinci Si Surgical System is designed to overcome the limitations of manual laparoscopy with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3-D vision and magnified view. Our surgeons control the da Vinci System, which translates hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the body. Though it is commonly referred to as a "robot" the da Vinci cannot act on its own. The surgery is performed entirely by Memorial Hospital's board-certified general Surgeons, Dr. William White, MD; Dr. Mark Campbell, MD, OB/GYN; Dr. Jonathan Grosdidier, MD; or Dr. Brian Retherford, OB/GYN.
