Ken,

Intutive Surgical's daVinci web site lists trained da Vanci surgeons in Louisana, that could be a good place to start your search.

thanks marang keru.

I am familiar with Intuitive Surgery, and Ochsner Hospital which is located in new orleans,--and is one of six hospitals in the world that has been authorized by Intuitive Surgery to teach the procedure; however,--I was asking about anyone who has used their hospital and doctors---and their comments

again thanks,
