While the patient portal is it’s own entity, when it comes to this website that you’re on, we’re working hard to make it the best it can be. We hope to make it so nice that you have a reason to come back and visit to learn about whatever health concerns you may have, or perhaps keep up with your visits automatically using our online system.
Robotics expertise is a rarity, but Dr. Jeff Hollis joined us in January 2013 and has brought experience & practice utilizing a state of the art DaVinci robot system which allows SMG the ability to perform the most up to date advanced laparoscopic procedures.
From their website: The da Vinci® Surgical System
The da Vinci Surgical System is a sophisticated robotic platform designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities and offer a state-of-the-art minimally invasive option for major surgery. With da Vinci, small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated comfortably at the da Vinci console, your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site inside your body. At the same time, the latest robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and seamlessly translate your surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the da Vinci instruments.
Although it is often called a “robot”, the da Vinci System cannot move or operate on its own; your surgeon is 100% in control.
