Open house at Essentia to feature surgery robot

FARGO – Essentia Health will host an open house for their newly-implemented da Vinci surgical robotic system, named V.E.G.A.S., from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday in the lower level atrium area at the 32nd Avenue South campus.

The event will allow staff and patients to learn more about robotic assisted surgery while also giving them the opportunity to view and maneuver the equipment firsthand.

Essentia surgical team members will be on hand to answer questions and share information and videos about the various aspects of the robotic system that can be used for procedures that include prostatectomy, hysterectomy, myomectomy, coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair and colorectal surgery.
