Dr. Steadman will assess your conditions on an individual basis to determine whether an open, laparoscopic, or robotic surgery procedure is most appropriate. One of the latest and most exciting medical innovations is our robotic-assisted surgery. During a robotic-assisted operation, your surgeon uses master controls to manipulate the instruments, and the instruments translate your surgeon’s movements into precise movements inside your body. Your surgeon is in control the whole time; the surgical system responds to the movements of the doctor. Robotic surgery gives the surgeon greater range of motion and dexterity while operating in a highly magnified, high resolution field. Also, your surgeon has better access to the area being operated on.

We look forward to working with you and your family to help you maintain good health. You also can count on us to be there should you or a loved one ever become ill, injured or have concerns about a health issue. Contact us to schedule an evaluation appointment and find out which option is right for you.
