CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Presbyterian Hospital, located in Charlotte, N.C., has become one of the first International Training Centers for Incisionless Surgery, the next advance in minimally invasive surgery. As an International Training Center for Incisionless Surgery, surgeons will travel to Presbyterian Hospital to observe David C. Voellinger, MD, FACS, FASMBS and Donald Balder, MD, FACS perform ROSE (Repair of Surgery, Endolumenal), a completely incision-free procedure used to repair previous surgeries on the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Incisionless surgery offers a number of potential benefits over traditional open or laparoscopic approaches including faster recoveries, less pain during recovery, reduced chance of infection and no visible scarring.
