A new surgery robot has arrived at Regional Medical Center in Manchester.
The robot will be used for general and gynecology surgeries, such as gallbladders, hernias, hysterectomies and possibly colon resections.
Surgeon and provider Dr. Grace Wang says it’s an exciting addition to the hospital.
This is not the first robot of its kind at Regional Medical Center. RMC has used a robotic surgery system since 2013 – but that system has runs its course.
RMC’s fund development department continues to fundraise for this system to offset the $2 million dollar investment. Donations are always welcome and can be made online at regmedctr.org/donate.
