Minimally Invasive General Surgery

Surgery is the recommended treatment for many conditions when medication, lifestyle changes and other nonsurgical treatments are not effective. The da Vinci® Surgical System can offer greater precision and control than traditional open surgery, with an incision of less than one inch. This minimizes the pain and risk of traditional surgery and allows faster recovery and improved clinical outcomes. Surgeons at The University of Kansas Health System use da Vinci for surgeries that include:

  • Gastric resection
  • Heller myotomy
  • Low anterior resection
  • Nissen fundoplication
  • Pancreatic resection
  • Paraesophageal hernias
  • Renal artery aneurysm repair
  • Small bowel resection
