-- The surgical team at Centennial Medical Center in Frisco is proud to provide patients with some of the most minimally invasive surgical options, including the single-incision, robotic-assisted procedure using the da Vinci®
Surgical System. During a da Vinci®
surgery, one tiny incision is made in the belly button, approximately one inch long, resulting in a virtually scar-free procedure.
The Food and Drug Administration cleared the specialized Single-Site™
instruments for use with the da Vinci Surgical System in December 2011. By introducing the technology at Centennial, surgeons are able to offer procedures with a faster recovery rate, less time lost from work, low blood loss and less pain during recovery.
During the procedure, the surgeon sits comfortably at a console, viewing a 3-D, high-definition image of the patient’s anatomy. The surgeon uses controls below the viewer to move the instrument arms and camera. In real-time, the system translates the surgeon's hand, wrist and finger movements into more precise movements of the miniaturized instruments inside the patient.
Unlike traditional robotic surgeries requiring three to five small incisions, this technology allows for a single incision in the belly button where instruments are placed and the procedure progresses. Offering this technologically advanced surgery demonstrates Centennial’s leadership in providing patients with the most minimally invasive surgical options available.
Centennial offers various types of robotic-assisted surgeries at its Frisco location in addition to a wide range of minimally invasive conventional laparoscopic surgeries.

da Vinci Surgery with Single-Site™
Instruments is cleared for use in gallbladder removal, and for hysterectomy and ovary removal for benign conditions. Patients who bleed easily, have abnormal blood clotting, are pregnant or morbidly obese are typically not candidates for minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery with Single-Site™
Instruments. The safety and effectiveness of this device for use in the performance of general laparoscopic abdominal surgery procedures have not been established.About Centennial Medical Center
