(MANCHESTER, CONN.) Join ECHN for an informative and interactive Open House, Robotic Surgery: Experience the Thrill, on Thursday, May 17, 4 to 7 p.m., in the main lobby of Manchester Memorial Hospital, 71 Haynes Street. Guests will be able to get up close and personal with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. Learn about the benefits of robotic surgery from our physicians and staff and then take a turn controlling the robot yourself! Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is located across the street from the hospital’s main entrance. Bring the whole family!
The da Vinci Surgical System allows surgeons to perform the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. A number of procedures that could not be performed using traditional technologies can now be performed using the da Vinci Surgical System.

The instruments are designed with seven degrees of motion that mirror the dexterity of the human hand and wrist.
