Using the robotic system gives Dr. Pakula enhanced dexterity and three dimensional visualization during her surgeries which allows her to perform smaller movements with extreme precision, all through tiny incisions eliminating the need for a large scar. Faster recovery and return to work is accelerated.

Dr. Pakula is a national leader in robotic surgery and has numerous published journal articles of her experience. She trains surgeons all over the country in various types of robotic surgery and Adventist Health Simi Valley Hospital is a Case Observation site where surgeons come to learn how to perform advanced robotic surgery.
