Your Surgery is a Work of Art

Innovators in Surgery

Connect with the surgical experts.

The first hospital in northern New England to do robot-assisted surgeries, we continue to be the largest, most experienced robotic surgical program on the Seacoast. Wentworth-Douglass Hospital surgeons use the most innovative and most precise robotic surgical system - Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci Xi Surgical System.

Persisting in our innovation, our surgeons utilize the latest PINPOINT/NOVADAQ Endoscopic Fluorescence Imaging System in gynecology/oncology and general surgery to visualize blood flow in vessels and tissue perfusion in real-time. This unique tool allows our surgeons to see anatomical structures and physiologic information in a single image simultaneously, making better-informed, critical decisions in the operating room.

Add to that, the fact that our surgical team provides 24-hour coverage in our state-of-the-art operating room for all surgery specialties.

Our team of professional on-call board-certified surgeons specialize in general surgical procedures, orthopedic, obstetrics/gynecology, gyn/oncology, thoracic/chest, vascular, ear, nose and throat, urology, lithotripsy, ophthalmology, podiatry, oral, neurosurgery, spine and plastic and reconstruction surgery.

We know surgery can be stressful for patients as well as their family and friends. Your dedicated nurse liaison will be there to offer support, answer questions and provide timely information during the surgical procedure to help decrease anxiety and worry. 

Attention to detail here extends to providing every single patient with a private pre-op and post-op room.

Optimizing state-of-the-art technology, with the latest advancements in surgery and a customized personal approach.

Delivering the exceptional outcomes you expect every day.

Your Same-Day Surgery Option

It’s more likely these days - thanks to advances in technology and surgical techniques - that you’ll be an outpatient for your routine surgery.

We know from experience. Our multi-disciplinary team of surgeons does more state-of-the-art minimally invasive outpatient surgeries using da Vinci®’s robotic Surgical System than any other hospital in the region.

The first and only laparoscopic robot approved by the FDA for urologic, general and gynecologic surgery, the da Vinci® System allows our surgeons to perform an array of more precise outpatient procedures with less pain and scarring and a quicker recovery.

Skin biopsies, cataract surgery, sinus surgery and other ENT procedures, as well as arthroscopy, hernia repair and gynecological procedures, are some of the surgeries and procedures now done as same-day surgeries.

Same-day surgery. It may be your best option. Consult with your physician.
