Robotic Surgery

DaVinci Robotic Operating Suite

Dr. Hatem Abdallah is a fellowship-trained general surgeon at MUSC Health Florence Medical Center ready to help patients through Robotic Surgery. Some of the robotic procedures he performs include Hernia surgeries, Gallbladder removal, and complex abdominal wall reconstruction. Dr. Abdallah’s goal is to bring advanced surgical care close to home in the Pee Dee region using this robotic technology, which has shown to improve surgical outcomes and reduce patient recovery times with less pain and shorter hospital stays. Robotic surgery uses three-dimensional, high definition visualization with wristed instrument articulation. This allows more patients to have access to a minimally invasive approach to surgery.
