Eastern Maine Medical Center...
The Nation's First, and Only, Epicenter for Bariatric and General Robotic Surgery
It never hurts to have an extra set of hands. And, at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, you can rest assured knowing your care is in the best of hands, and your surgeon is surrounded by the most advanced technology. Since 2004, EMMC has been a leader in robotic surgery, not only in the country, but the world. Most recently, EMMC was named the nation's first, and only, bariatric and general surgery robotic epicenter. Surgeons from across the country and the world are traveling to EMMC to learn the most leading edge procedures from our experts -- your surgeons.
Robotically-assisted surgery is the future of surgery, and if you or a loved one is considering traditional and other minimally invasive surgical procedures for bariatric (surgical weight loss), general, gynecologic, and urologic surgeries, as well as pelvic floor disorders, ask your primary care provider to refer you to one of EMMC's surgeons who specialize in robotic surgery.
A Safer Surgical Treatment Option
Robotically-assisted surgery is one of the most effective and least invasive surgical treatment options available. Instead of traditional open surgery with a several inch-long incision, similar results can now be accomplished with five small incisions; the largest of which is smaller than the size of a dime. Smaller incisions are not the only benefit to patients. Robotically-assisted surgery also leads to:
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and scarring
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities
