Community Medical Center Invites Public to ‘Test Drive’ da
Vinci Surgical Robot
Hands-on demonstrations of da Vinci surgical system to be offered at Robotic
Surgery Open House.
Toms River, NJ, October 21, 2016 – Community Medical Center’s dedication to providing patients
with access to state-of-the-art technology began nine years ago, when
the hospital, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, introduced robotic-assisted
surgery to Ocean County. They have built upon that promise by introducing
a second robot, the da Vinci Xi, which features the latest in cutting-edge
technology, to its surgical program.
Community Medical Center will hold a Robotic Surgery Open House on Tuesday,
November 1, 8 am – 3 pm, where guests will be able to ‘test
drive’ a da Vinci robot. This event is open to the public and will
take place in Community Medical Center’s Outpatient Lobby. Attendees
will be able to learn more about the latest robotic-assisted technology
now available for use in surgical procedures at Community Medical Center,
and surgeons and staff will be on hand to answer questions. No registration
is required for this free event.
Surgeons at Community Medical Center have been performing robotic surgery
since 2008, making them among the most experienced robotic-assisted surgeons
in the region. The da Vinci Surgical Systems is designed to help surgeons
perform minimally invasive surgery through the control of specialized
instruments and a miniaturized camera, resulting in shorter recovery times,
less risk of infection and less pain for patients. Surgical expertise
is available at Community Medical Center in gynecologic oncology, gynecology,
colon surgery, general surgery for hernia and gall bladder procedures,
and urologic for prostatectomies.
