Gordon Hospitals da Vinci surgical system was featured at the Tellus Science Museum during their Spring Break Science Escape week on Monday, April 3.

Attendees enjoyed a live demonstration of the da Vinci robot and learned about the robotics program at Gordon Hospital. Attendees then had the opportunity to test-drive the robot with guidance from urologic oncologist and Director of Robotic Surgery Hak Lee, MD. A da Vinci intuitive representative also fielded questions about the surgical system.

Robotic Clinical Coordinator Sharon Bass, RN, and Director of Community Outreach Tracy Farriba, RN, guided attendees in utilizing laparoscopic trainers. This allowed them to perform tasks with actual laparoscopic instruments and video visualization.
