Robotic & Laser-Assisted Surgery

We’re proud Panama City Surgery Center is the only Outpatient surgery center in North Florida featuring a da Vinci Si Surgical System giving patients a choice: coming to us instead of a hospital because we can provide the same doctors and the same procedure at a fraction of the cost! Many of our surgeons are specially trained in minimally invasive, complex surgery using advanced technological robotic and laser systems to provide extremely precise movements for certain surgical procedures.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Specially trained OB/GYN and General Surgery surgeons use the advanced da Vinci® Surgical System powered by ultra-modern robotic technology enabling smaller, precise movements while operating is controlled through a few small incisions. The benefits to patients include decreased:

  • Time out of work or daily life activities
  • Scarring
  • Pain
  • Convenience of coming to Panama City Surgery Center for a da Vinci procedure vs a local hospital in order to save precious time AND money

The da Vinci® features are also of benefit to our physicians performing the surgery:

  • Magnified vision, including a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • In some cases, a laparoscope – a thin tube with a tiny camera and light at the end – which sends images to a video monitor in the OR to guide the physician during surgery; however, your surgeon is in control of the da Vinci System at all times

These da Vinci®-trained surgeons offer the following robotic-assisted procedures:

OB/GYN (Drs. Justo Maqueira, George Ramie, Samuel Wolf, Henry Breland, Toni Pennington, Jones Yolanda)

  • Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
  • Salpingectomy (removal of the fallopian tube)
  • Tubal reanastomosis (unblocks blocked fallopian tube)
