R.A. Gamagami, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a board-certified general surgeon who has spent over 20 years providing surgical services to patients in academic, rural and urban settings. With his extensive credentials and experience, Dr. Gamagami is well known throughout the area and has pioneered many advanced surgical procedures using robotic-assisted technology with the da Vinci robot.

In fact, Dr. Gamagami has been appointed as an Epicenter Surgeon for da Vinci Surgical. Surgeons come from across North and South America every week to learn from Dr. Gamagami, who uses robotic technology for general, colon and rectal surgery.

Dr. Gamagami was the first surgeon to perform the area’s first Single-Site™ da Vinci® Si Cholecystectomy (robotic gallbladder surgery) at Silver Cross Hospital and is a leading expert for this and other digestive disorder surgeries in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Epicenter surgeons, like Dr. Gamagami, act as mentors for newly trained da Vinci® robotic surgeons to promote ongoing learning.
