What are robotic and laparoscopic surgery?

Robotic and laparoscopic surgery are minimally invasive procedures in which Dr. Shabout makes tiny incisions and removes, repairs, or replaces tissues (often within your abdominal area) to reduce pain or the risk of medical complications.

Robotic surgery

Robotic surgery consists of innovative robotic arms and a console that Dr. Shabout uses to control the arms and complete surgical procedures with optimal precision and accuracy.

Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery uses a tiny tube with a camera attached to complete surgical procedures using smaller incisions than open surgery.

What should I expect during minimally invasive surgery?

You often receive general anesthesia to help you fall asleep before undergoing robotic or laparoscopic surgery with Dr. Shabout. He may ask you to stop taking certain medicines, avoid food and drink the morning of the procedure, and make arrangements for someone to drive you home afterward.

He uses innovative robotic or laparoscopic technology to make tiny incisions and repair, modify, remove, replace, or add tissues or devices into your gastrointestinal tract or other parts of your abdomen.

What happens after robotic and laparoscopic surgery?

After your procedure, it’s important to get plenty of rest, take medicines as directed, and avoid strenuous activity. You can expect some tenderness, swelling, and redness at the surgery site during the healing process. Slowly ease back into physical activity as directed and attend all follow-up visits with Dr. Shabout.
