Robotic Assisted Surgery

da Vinci Surgical System

Leaders in Robotic-Assisted Surgical Options 

The first hospital in northern New England to do robot-assisted surgeries, we continue to be the largest, most experienced robotic surgical program on the Seacoast. Wentworth-Douglass Hospital surgeons use the most innovative and most precise robotic surgical system - Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci Xi Surgical System.

The first and only laparoscopic robot approved by the FDA for urologic, general and gynecologic surgery, the da Vinci® System allows our surgeons to perform an array of more precise procedures with less pain and scarring and a quicker recovery.

With two da Vinci surgical robots, Wentworth-Douglass is the largest, most experienced robotic surgical program on the Seacoast. Our highly-experienced, multi-discipline team of surgeons do more state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries using daVinci®’s sophisticated robotic platform than any other area hospital.

The recent addition of the new da Vinci Xi robot gives our surgeons even greater control and clarity. Its wristed instrumentation rotates far beyond a surgeon’s natural range of motion and eliminates tremors. The highly-magnified HD camera provides a crystal-clear 3d view of the surgical site. Plus, integrated table motion allows patients to be moved and rotated into an optimal position during surgery.

Sixteen Wentworth-Douglass surgeons are trained to perform robotic-assisted surgery, including some of the most experienced robotic surgeons in the country.

Robotic-assisted surgeries at Wentworth-Douglass include:

  • Urology
  • Gynecologic
  • General/abdominal surgeries
  • Bariatric weight loss surgery

Wentworth-Douglass’s bariatric surgeons use the new da Vinci Xi robot to perform both Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy.

When you need surgery, you want to make the best choice. Talk with your physician to decide what is optimal for you, your health and your recovery.
