Pioneers in Robotic-Assisted General Surgery
Early in 2010, Matt Morgan, DO, FACOS, and Mike Thompson, DO, FACOS, pioneered the use of the da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgical system at Pella Regional Health Center for general surgery procedures such as gallbladder removal, hernia repair and more. This advanced, minimally invasive technology allows your Pella Regional general surgeons to operate with greater precision, dexterity and control. That means you benefit from:
- Small incisions and minimal scarring
- Significantly less pain
- Minimal blood loss and need for transfusion
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery and return to regular activities
A nationally recognized leader in general surgery, Dr. Morgan was selected to share his experience in transitioning from traditional procedures to robotic-assisted techniques at the 2015 First Annual Global Symposium on Robotic-Assisted and Minimally Invasive Hernia Repair in New York City.
