Surgical Care

Leaders in Minimally Invasive Surgical Options 

It's about time. Getting back to living your life sooner. That’s your goal and ours.

You want the best option when it’s time for surgery. Explore the possibility of a minimally invasive procedure as an alternative to major surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery means small to no scars, a quicker recovery, decreased pain, fewer complications, less chance for infection and a shorter time in the hospital.

 Plus they are an option for more and more procedures including:

  • Knee and shoulder arthroscopies
  • Diagnostic laparoscopies
  • Robotic hernia repairs
  • Laparoscopic appendectomies
  • Single-site and multiport robotic cholecystectomies
  • Minimally invasive lumbar discectomies
  • Robotic and laparoscopic hysterectomies
  • Video-assisted thorascopic surgeries

Consider all of the benefits when your doctor recommends a minimally invasive procedure as an option for your orthopedic, gynecological or general surgery.

Robotic Surgery

We are a regional leader in robot-assisted surgeries.

Wentworth-Douglass recently added a second da Vinci robot - Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci Xi Surgical System - making it the largest, most experienced robotic surgical program on the Seacoast. Our highly-experienced, multi-discipline team of surgeons do more state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries using daVinci®’s sophisticated robotic platform than any other area hospital. 

The addition of the da Vinci Xi robot gives our surgeons even great control and clarity. Its wristed instrumentation rotates far beyond a surgeon’s natural range of motion and eliminates tremors. The highly-magnified HD camera provides a crystal clear 3D view of the surgical site. Plus, integrated table motion allows patients to be moved and rotated into an optimal position during surgery.

Sixteen Wentworth-Douglass surgeons are trained to performed robotic-assisted surgery, including some of the most experienced robotic surgeons in the country. Robot-assisted surgeries at WDH include urology, gynecologic, general/abdominal surgeries, and bariatric weight loss surgery. Wentworth-Douglass’s bariatric surgeons use the new da Vinci Xi robot to perform both Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy.

When you need surgery, you want to make the best choice. Talk with your physician to decide what is optimal for you, your health and your recovery.
