Lee's Summit Medical Center has the latest technology available for robotic surgery and has the only single-incision surgical robot in the region. Our program provides patients with a minimally invasive method of surgery that promotes timely recovery and minimal scaring. During surgical procedures, we have a dedicated multidisciplinary robotics team that serves each patient. This team creates consistency and standardization in the level of care, which is in place to maximize patient outcomes.
We have skilled surgeons performing robotic surgery at Lee's Summit Medical Center, including those who perform cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), colorectal, general gynecology, gynecological oncology, general surgery, vascular and thoracic surgery, urology, and urogynecology surgery. Our surgeons are experienced in performing da Vinci® robotic surgery.
Some of the major benefits experienced by surgeons using the da Vinci® Surgical System over traditional approaches have been greater surgical precision, increased range of motion, improved dexterity, enhanced visualization and improved access. Benefits experienced by patients may include a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss, fewer transfusions, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities. None of these benefits can be guaranteed, as surgery is patient and procedure specific.
