Lofing’s surgeon, Dr. Brad Olberding of General Surgery Associates, says one of the most rewarding parts of his career is doing outreach in the smaller communities surrounding Lincoln.
“Patients are so appreciative when they can stay close to home when going through a stressful experience like a surgery,” Dr. Olberding said.
And, he says, robotic surgery offers another option for care at BCH.
“Simply put, the robotics platform allows more types of operations to be performed in a minimally invasive fashion,” Dr. Olberding said. “Procedures that could only be done with a large incision, can now be done through small incisions. Even surgeries that could be done through small incisions without the robot can now be done easier and with less trauma with the robot, which leads to better outcomes.”
Lofing said he’s glad he went with the robotic surgery option, and really appreciated the minimal downtime.
“I highly recommend this procedure,” Lofing said.
