Herbert Gretz MD Robotic Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping

Near INfra red imaging



The da Vinci surgical system is a minimally invasive option for patients facing surgery. With the da Vinci system, surgeons make just a few small incisions - similar to traditional laparoscopy.


With special imaging technology the da Vinci System allows doctors to identify sentinel lymph nodes.


In select cases, dye is injected before surgery. During surgery Firefly technology is used to identify the lymph node know as the sentinel lymph node.
