The da Vinci Xi Platform Offers Several Advantages for Surgery Patients

Smaller Incisions

With the da Vinci Xi surgical system our surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgery on a whole new level.  By accessing the surgical site through several smaller incisions, Dr. A. Joseph Cribbins III and Dr. Keli McCalman can help patients experience: less pain, reduced scarring, and the best results possible.

Faster Recovery

For most patients this minimally invasive technique translates to a quicker and more comfortable recovery. Because the recovery is faster, patients can experience: a shorter hospital stay, less time away from work or school, and a quicker return to their normal activities.  

Better Results

Dr. Cribbins and Dr. McCalman are board-certified surgeons who are highly trained and experienced in robotic surgery.  They use the most current robotic surgical systems and tools to treat patients at their affiliated hospitals.

Our da Vinci Xi system provides the surgeon with 3DHD magnified vision and true depth perception.  This allows the surgeon to see beyond the capability of the naked eye. The da Vinci robot also allows the surgeon increased precision and a greater range of motion while operating.  This translates to even better results for patients and takes minimally invasive surgery to a whole new level.

Thank you Dr Cribbins for making my Christmas wish come true.  For many years I have wanted to visit my family in  California for Christmas, but I have not been able to do so because I did not fit in an airplane seat.  I have lost 325 pounds thanks to having weight loss surgery with you.  I was able to fly home this Christmas and see my family!  Not  only did I fit in an airplane seat I fit in a coach seat.  Thank you for the life changing surgery!  I can now go anywhere I want and not worry if I will fit in a seat on a plane, at the movies, in a restaurant or ANYWHERE else.  I have my life back and I loving my life again.  Thank you Thank you Thank you !

I was referred to Dr Cribbins by 3 different colleagues and am so glad I chose his office. The process for my insurance to cover my gastric sleeve was long and confusing but his office has helped with every step. I am not 12 days post op with zero complications and so excited for my new life! Dr Cribbins, Dr McCallum, Keisha, Barbara and Crystal are all life savers! Thank you so much!!
