Elliot 1-Day Surgery is the first Ambulatory Surgery Center in New Hampshire to offer robotic-assisted surgery with a da Vinci surgical robot. The technology will be used for general, gynecological, and urological procedures, and it is in addition to their current total joint MAKO robotic system. Robotic-assisted surgery expands options for patients who need minimally invasive surgery and are able to return home the same day. This service has been provided for over 10 years on the Elliot Hospital’s main campus, and we are pleased to expand our offerings for these services at the Elliot 1-Day Surgery Center.
Elliot General Surgeon Dr. Daiying Lu, said, “This new robotic technology was added specifically to help with our patients’ care. The technology is safe, precise, and makes it possible to provide a wider range of outpatient surgical options. As a surgeon, I have the highest confidence that our patients are getting the best care possible when they come to The Elliot. Making this new technology available at an ambulatory surgery setting is another example of our commitment to excellence in care.”
The technology allows for the surgeon to use a console that provides high definition views of the surgical area. With smooth precision, the surgeon controls instruments that move like a human hand but with greater range of motion.
