It never hurts to have an extra set of hands. And, at Eastern Maine Medical Center, 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 and is the nation's first, bariatric and general surgery robotic epicenter.

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, robotic-assisted surgery may be an option for you.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic surgery is one of the most effective and least invasive surgical treatment options available. Robotic surgery is one type of minimally invasive surgery, and this type of surgery may lead to smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, less pain and scarring, faster recover, and a quicker return to normal activities.

With fluorescence imaging technology, the benefits of robot-assisted surgery are even greater.

EMMC’s team of robotic-trained, board-certified surgeons have years of experience. Each surgeon also is experienced in traditional open and other minimally invasive procedures.
