The Abdominal Wall Robotic Unit, led by Dr. Antonio Darecchio, is the first unit in Italy to use minimally invasive robotic surgery for treating diastasis recti, inguinal hernia, and cholecystectomy.
The main activities of the Abdominal Wall Robotic Unit are the following:
- Ultrasound procedures performed during an outpatient visit.
- Robotic surgery for minimally invasive treatment of abdominal diastasis, inguinal hernia, and gallstones.
- Combined plastic and aesthetic surgery procedures for the simultaneous treatment of conditions using a conventional surgical method.
The Columbus Clinic Abdominal Wall Robotic Unit is the result of a collaboration with Dr. Antonio Darecchio, an Italian general surgeon who has gained advanced skills during his time at cutting-edge facilities in the Swiss Confederation, expert in abdominal wall robotics with extensive experience in Italy, a large surgical caseload, and considered one of the foremost leaders in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
