Surgical Robot Test Drive Day

Monday is your chance to test drive a piece of technology making a huge difference in the operating room.

The da Vinci surgical robot has been at St. Luke's for a short time. Multiple St. Luke's doctors are using this ground-breaking technology for general, gynecologic and other surgeries. The microscopic "hands" allow for smaller incisions, meaning less scarring and shorter hospital stays.

You can try it out Monday, May 19th from 10:00-4:00 p.m. in St. Luke's cafeteria. Brittany got to try it out last week, and she says it was very cool, intuitive and fun!
