MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Once the thing of science fiction, robotic surgeries are now a treatment option for many patients. Such surgeries are not actually performed by a robot, but rather are robot-assisted procedures in which your highly trained surgeon is in complete control of sophisticated instruments that enhance the surgeon’s precision and accuracy. At Northern Westchester Hospital, surgeons are at the forefront of this innovation using the da Vinci Surgical System®.

At NWH, surgery for colon diseases are frequently treated with minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System. In the procedure, the surgeon uses tiny instruments and 3D visualization, which requires smaller incisions than traditional laparoscopic surgery.

Enhanced visualization and smaller incisions can result in considerable benefits to the patient including reduced scarring, less pain, a lower risk of infection, decreased blood loss, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery times. In some cases, patients are back to their routines in a matter of days.

Intuitive Surgical, Inc., has designated Dr. Jerald Wishner and Northern Westchester Hospital as a designated Training Epicenter for Robot-assisted Colon and Rectal Surgery—a peer-to-peer training network for the da Vinci Surgery System.

This designation places Dr. Wishner and Northern Westchester Hospital among an elite group of da Vinci robotic surgery programs with the deepest experience in da Vinci Surgery in the world. As part of the network, Northern Westchester trains surgeons from around the country in robotic colon surgery. The designation also means NWH can bring the most advanced robot-assisted techniques to their patients.
