Vassar Brothers Hospital Opens Center For Advanced Surgery
Vassar Brothers Hospital will officially launch its Center for Advanced Surgery with the grand opening of one of the most high-tech operating rooms in the United States on Monday, February 25th at 10 am. This state-of-the-art, million-dollar operating room for minimally invasive surgery is ergonomically designed to handle procedures, such as arthroscopic surgery, removal of kidneys, gall bladders, colons, kidney stones as well as lung biopsies. The high-tech operating rooms allow patients to undergo surgery with a small incision, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
