OAK PARK, IL– Frederick M. Tiesenga, MD, Medical Director of Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery at West Suburban Medical Center, gave a presentation about advanced robotic surgery on Monday, Oct. 7, at the American College of Surgeons 99th Annual Clinical Congress in Washington, D.C.
"Robotic surgery is increasingly becoming a valuable option for many different general surgery procedures. It was an honor and a great opportunity to speak about robotics in general surgery to my colleagues at the annual ACS Clinical Congress," says Dr. Tiesenga. "The Clinical Congress a valuable forum to share ideas with surgical leaders around the country on how we can continue to improve patient care."
Under Dr. Tiesenga's medical directorship, West Suburban Medical Center is home to a nationally-recognized da Vinci Si® robotic general surgery program. The program had enabled the development of a strong multi-specialty robotics program for the hospital, by creating a destination center for medical learning and advanced patient care.
Minimally-invasive robotic surgical options may offer significantly reduced risk, pain, scarring and recovery time. Many robotic surgeries can be performed on an outpatient basis or require only a short hospital stay. West Suburban Medical Center's minimally invasive and robotic team provides the latest treatments, coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across several specialties. Robotically-trained surgeons in several specialties at West Suburban Medical Center – including urology, gynecology, and general surgery – are able to treat a variety of conditions.
