Robotic Surgery Phoenix AZ da Vinci® General Surgery (Robotic Surgery)

Doctors often recommend surgery when medicine and lifestyle changes cannot ease your abdominal or gastrointestinal symptoms. If your doctor recommends surgery, learning about all surgical options can help you to make the best decision for your situation.

Surgery is often an effective treatment for many abdominal and GI conditions, but traditional open surgery with a large incision is highly invasive. Open surgery may also require a long hospital stay and lengthy recovery.

Fortunately, there are minimally invasive surgical options. The most common is laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopy). Surgeons make a few small incisions and insert a tiny camera and long-handled instruments to reach inside your abdomen. The camera transmits images onto a video monitor in the operating room to guide surgeons as they operate. Traditional laparoscopy is effective for many routine procedures but the rigid surgical instruments can be technically challenging for delicate or complex operations.

da Vinci Surgery is another minimally invasive option for patients facing abdominal or gastrointestinal surgery. Instead of a large abdominal incision used in open surgery, da Vinci surgeons make a few small incisions - similar to traditional laparoscopy. However, the da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables Dr. Deka to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.

As one of Phoenix, Arizona’s leading surgeons in the use of Robotic Sugery, Dr. Deka has performed hundreds of surgeries using the da Vinci system and is an ardent supporter of the use of technology in medicine.

Dr. Deka was the first to perform robotic single-site cholecystectomy at Scottsdale Healthcare’s Shea campus, and routinely performs advanced laparoscopic and robotic procedures for various disease processes. Dr. Deka serves as Teaching Faculty at St. Joseph’s Medical Center as well as for the Maricopa County Program. He has been published in peer review journals and enjoys utilizing the latest technological advances in general surgery. He is one of the founding members of the Robotics Institute at Scottsdale Healthcare, focusing on maintaining standards of excellence in robotic surgery.
