StoneSprings Hospital Center will host a Robotic Take-Over event welcoming visitors from across the community to take a closer look at the hospital's robotic surgery systems and talk with the area's leading robotic surgeons.
Free and open to the public, the event will take place Thursday, Nov. 21 from 6 pm - 8 pm in the lobby of StoneSprings Hospital Center, 24440 Stone Springs Blvd., Dulles.
The event will feature innovative surgical tools and systems in addition to student-built robots from Loudoun Country Day School as well as the Academies of Loudoun. Guests will be able to talk to surgeons about the robotic technology and view a demonstration by a surgical robot.
StoneSprings Hospital Center's robotic system includes two da Vinci XI surgical systems, which surgeons use to perform colorectal, esophageal, general surgery, gynecology, and urology procedures.
"Robotics allows for more control and precision in surgical procedures, meaning less blood loss, smaller incisions and a faster recovery for our patients," said Matt Mathias, CEO of StoneSprings Hospital Center. "It's our goal to remain at the forefront of surgical technology for our patients," said Mathias.
"This event is a celebration of our robotic surgery capabilities - the medical teams and the technology." said Mathias. "It's an exciting opportunity to get up close with this advanced technology and talk to surgeons who use it every day."
StoneSprings Hospital Center has established the only Xi Robotic Training Epicenter for General Surgery in Northern Virginia. As one of only 40 General Surgery Epicenters in the world, and just the second in Virginia, StoneSprings Hospital Center has become a front runner in robotic surgery and expertise.
