Saint Mary’s Hospital is pioneering the use of robotic-assisted surgery in the Greater Waterbury community.
The introduction of robotic surgery at Saint Mary’s demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest available standard of surgical care, outstanding clinical quality and the best possible experience for each one of our patients.
This technology allows our highly skilled and trained surgeons to use their hands to guide the da Vinci® robotic surgical tool. What does this mean for our patients? A shorter hospital stay, less pain, faster recovery and quicker return to normal activities. The pioneering of robotic-assisted surgery at Saint Mary’s Hospital allows surgeons to expand the scope of minimally invasive options that are available to patients in a range of surgical subspecialties.
Patients benefit from minimally invasive procedures, including robotic procedures, in a variety of ways, including:
- faster recovery
- fewer blood transfusions
- less blood loss
- less pain
- less risk of infection
- less scarring
- quicker return to normal daily activities
- shorter hospital stays
