Huntington Hospital expands robotic surgery capabilities
Story Number is
Huntington Hospital Thoracic Surgeon Vijay Singh, MD, and one of the hospital’s da Vinci surgical robots.
Huntington Hospital has expanded its robotic surgical capabilities with the addition of a second da Vinci robot.
Utilizing very small incisions, the da Vinci robot allows surgeons to see a patient’s tissue and organs magnified up to 10 times. Due to the minimally invasive nature of robotic surgery, patients experience quicker recovery times, lower risks of infection and bleeding and less scarring.
Huntington Hospital offers robotic surgery in the following areas: gynecology, thoracic, urologic, urogynecology, colorectal, surgical oncology and general surgery.
“Huntington Hospital continuously provides the safest, most cutting-edge and comprehensive care to our community. The addition of the second robot supports that type of care.” said Gerard Brogan, Jr., MD, executive director of Huntington Hospital. “We are proud to be nationally recognized as a robotic center of excellence.”
Huntington Hospital was designated a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation earlier this year. The hospital was recently ranked for the second year in a row as the top community hospital in New York State, according to U.S. News & World Report.
