Single site surgery allows the doctor to operate through a tiny incision in the belly button. It's a virtually scarless surgical procedure that minimizes trauma. Single site surgery is performed using the da Vinci surgical system. Dr. Marcus is not only one of this country’s leading robotic surgeons, he is also a teacher that travels the world training doctors using this technology.
If you are facing colorectal surgery, ask your doctor about minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery.

As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control.
State-of-the-art da Vinci uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. da Vinci – taking surgery beyond the limits of the human hand.
Physicians have used the da Vinci System successfully worldwide in approximately 1.5 million various surgical procedures to date. da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
