Nicklaus Children’s is among the first pediatric facilities in the region to offer robotic single-site incision surgery for children utilizing the da Vinci Xi® system. The technique offers a single incision minimally invasive surgical option for gallbladder or ovarian surgeries in children.
Compared to conventional laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, the robot enhances a surgeon’s ability to reach the targeted area and improves precision. The benefits for the patient can include less scarring, shorter recovery and less probability for infection.
