Proficiency in Robotic Surgery
When Winchester Hospital obtained its first da Vinci surgical robot in 2008, our general surgeons committed to offering a wide range of procedures using this technology. Robotic surgery can be performed through tiny incisions with more precision, less pain, and a faster recovery.

- Hernia repair (inguinal and ventral)
- Hiatal hernias
- Gall bladder surgery
- Procedures to treat GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- Stomach (gastric) surgery
