The newest member of Flushing Hospital's surgical team has been described as world renowned and revolutionary in the field of minimally invasive surgery. This prestigious new member of the team also needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet.

The Da Vinci robotic surgical platform is now at Flushing Hospital, offering our patients the most technologically advanced surgical system in the entire region.

Robotic surgery has been available for a number of years and offers patients many benefits, including minimal pain, faster recovery time, less blood loss, and shorter hospital stays. What makes Fl ushing Hospital's robotic platform so exciti ng, however, is the new single-site robotic capabilities it offers.

Flushing Hospital is planning a "Robot Week" where employees and community members will have an opportunity to meet and name Da Vinci in the near future.
