Robotic-Assisted Surgery

daVinci-doctor-console-cartLodi Health now offers state-of-the-art technology with the installation of the da Vinci Surgery System at Lodi Memorial Hospital. Robotic-assisted general, gynecological and urological surgery means surgeons now have an alternative to traditional and laser surgery to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions and minimal down time. In addition, the single-site surgery option when possible allows patients to undergo a procedure, such as gall bladder surgery, with even less pain, no scarring and even faster recovery.

Dr. Fahey uses state-of-the-art technology to reduce hospital stay and improve the general health of his patients after surgery.

A graduate of the Medical College of Georgia, he completed his internship and residency programs in surgery at the UCSF Fresno, Medical Education Program.

fahey “Over the last 10 years as a practicing general surgeon, I have developed a philosophy of what patient care and surgery means to me. My principal goal is to improve my patient’s quality of life. When I begin caring for my patients, I determine whether each patient will truly benefit from surgical intervention. It is my plan to do the surgery in the least impactful way as possible. This can involve robotic, laparoscopic or sometimes traditional surgery. In order to help make these decisions, I attend surgery conferences yearly to keep up with the latest in surgical technique. Overall, I hope to provide minimally invasive procedures that can reduce recovery time. I believe the most important thing in recovery after surgery is returning to normal daily activities as soon as possible. After most of the procedures I perform, patients can return to work, gardening, fishing and exercising within one to two weeks. This philosophy stems from reports of professional athletes getting back to playing their sport after surgery and my own experience as a lifelong athlete and two time national cycling champion. The passion and commitment it takes to become a national champion in cycling is the same passion and commitment I bring every day to providing the best possible surgical care for my patients.” -- Tom Fahey, MD
