Meet Dr. Melvin
The da Vinci Surgical System™ is an option with Dr. Willie Melvin
In the hands of Dr. Willie Melvin, the minimally invasive precise movements of tiny instruments of the da Vinci Robot may be the way your surgery is performed. Rather than the surgeon’s hands in your body, their hand movements are guiding robotic tools. Using a tiny camera with a light that sends precise videos to a monitor in the operating room theater, Dr. Melvin is able to guide the entirety of the surgical procedure from hand held instruments at a control panel.
This Robotic surgical technique means small incisions, the ability for Dr. Melvin to zoom in and magnify the area of concern all with great precision.
This targeted surgical approach generally allows patients to recover faster with less pain and less need for pain medications.
