NRMC performed its first Robotics Surgical Procedure today. Congratulations to Dr. Ball and our Surgical Team!
This milestone event was the culmination of months of training and preparation involving not only our medical staff and surgical services team, but many departments working behind the scene to support our clinicians. I am very proud to be a part of the NRMC family.
Our Board of Commissioners approved the acquisition of the daVinci Si Robotics Surgical System this spring. We believe this new technology further strengthens our commitment to bringing state-of-the-art treatment options to the residents of Natchitoches and the surrounding communities we serve.
The benefits for our patients are many including: smaller incisions, less pain and scarring, a reduced risk of infection, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times to name a few.
In addition to Dr. Ball, Doctors William Zeichner, Moshood Olatinwo and Martin Aviles will be performing robotics procedures at NRMC as well.
Again Congratulations to our team!
