Logan Regional Medical Center will host an open house Tuesday evening to show off new equipment with state-of-the-art technology.
Logan Regional Medical Center launched its robotic assisted surgery program with the arrival of a new surgical robot. The new and innovative tech is a $1.5 million investment that assists specially trained surgeons in specific surgical procedures for general surgery and gynecologic.
The DaVinci X surgical system is technology for minimally invasive procedures with robotic assisted instruments.
A surgeon’s hand movements at a console are replicated by the robotic instruments in smaller and more precise movements within the body of the patient using a smaller incision. Robotic surgery, or robotic-assisted surgery, allows surgeons the ability to perform complex procedures with added precision, flexibility and control than with many conventional techniques.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will occur between five and seven o’clock Tuesday evening in the hospital’s OB waiting area.
“Robotic technology is transforming the way we perform surgeries at Logan Regional Medical Center,” said Dr. Jodi Cisco-Goff, a robotically trained surgeon at Logan Regional Medical Center. “Through this new, advanced tool, we are able to personalize surgery in a more precise way for each patient.”
“Robotic Hysterectomy surgery is a very unique and creative approach to help women with tiny incisions for less pain and quick recovery,” says Dr. Emad Mousa, OBGYN at Logan Regional Medical Center.
While many patients are a candidate for robotic surgery, Logan Regional Medical Center wants to remind patients to consult with their doctors about the best surgical method for their individual needs.
