Patients in the High Desert region who are in need of one or more of these techniques should work with a highly-skilled surgeon who is well-versed in the laparoscopic approach. There are many benefits to this surgical technique, for most surgeries only require an incision that is .5-1.0 cm wide. A tiny incision means that the surgery itself will be more discreet; there is less pain after the procedure, and the recovery process is generally easier.
With the advancement of laparoscopic surgery, researchers and surgeons have developed yet another innovative surgical approach. Robotic surgery has stemmed from laparoscopic surgery and allows surgeons to complete an even wider range of procedures using minimally-invasive techniques. Dr. Mobley is an expert in robotic surgery, and often recommends that his patients look into this option. Robotic surgery allows a surgeon to work behind a console while an advanced robotic device completes the procedure using the most minimally-invasive techniques. Dr. Mobley is in control the entire time. However, with a greater field of vision and the opportunity to use the most precise surgical tools available, he can achieve better results in his work on the rest of the patient’s body with less disturbance.
General surgeons today must be trained and proficient in the many different minimally-invasive approaches available, including Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery. Whether a patient is looking into bariatric surgery, or a patient needs their gallbladder removed, it might be time to set up a consultation with Dr. Mobley in order to discuss the various available options. At this consultation, Dr. Mobley will help a patient determine if laparoscopic surgery or robotic surgery is the right choice for them.
