da Vinci® Surgical System
As an expert in minimally invasive surgical techniques, Elijah Mobley M.D. utilizes the da Vinci® Surgical System when working on patients in Victorville and Apple Valley. The da Vinci® Surgical System is a robotic surgery system that allows a surgeon to stretch the boundaries of other traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques. Essentially, patients who require major surgery can have that procedure performed using minimally invasive techniques with the da Vinci® system. This makes recovery easier and also improves the end result for the patient.
The term robotic surgery may make some patients apprehensive, but it’s important to note that the system must be controlled by a highly-skilled surgeon. It does not, cannot and will not make its own decisions and operate on its own. It is simply a tool that can be used by a surgeon that utilizes the best technology available, allowing Dr. Mobley to improve his capabilities when working on an individual patient.
