He is now listed as a da Vinci Surgeon on www.davincisurgery.com. This website is a great resource for patients in the Mid-Atlantic da Vinci marketplace giving them education regarding the most advanced minimally invasive surgical options offered by Dr. Hackman and the UNC ENT Robotic team.
This is truly an honor for Dr. Hackman and the UNC Robotics Team, as it required much hard work and dedication. Dr. Hackman began with a personal commitment to conduct da Vinci training and has since mastered his TORS approach. Dr. Hackman adopted the da Vinci approach to provide the ability to reconstruct utilizing suturing thus improving outcomes for patients with oral cancer. His patients have since been offered the most comprehensive, minimally invasive surgical option for throat cancer. He is now able to drastically limit the possibility of a patient having an open mandibulotomy procedure, and the long recovery that goes along with it. Dr. Hackman’s commitment to minimally invasive surgery, dedication, and hard work should be commended. Congratulations on this great achievement!
