Robotics aid surgeons
2 EGRMC doctors using latest technology on patients
Shakena Taylor, a scrub tech with the East Georgia Regional Medical Center robotics team, demonstrates how surgeons practice with the da Vinci surgical system.
East Georgia Regional Medical Center's ongoing effort to provide the latest in health care technology for its physicians and patients recently brought the da Vinci robotic surgery system to the hospital. "East Georgia Regional is always interested in investing in technology that is best for the patient," said Nathan Vooys, assistant administrator of the hospital. "The da Vinci is just the next step from a surgical standpoint as it provides minimally invasive surgery that is less painful resulting in a shorter recovery time for the patient as well as a lower rate of infection."
