NSMC News Releases

Employees and Donors "Meet" Our New Robot

Employees on the Salem campus recently had a chance to check out our new surgical robot. A $1 million challenge grant from the Davenport family has made it possible for NSMC to develop a Robotic Surgery Program as a component of our comprehensive surgical services. The state-of-the-art surgical robot will enable surgeons to perform delicate and complex procedures with enhanced precision. During robot-assisted surgery, a highly trained surgeon operates robotic arms while seated at a computer console that provides high-definition, magnified and 3-D views of the surgical site. The Robotic Surgery Program will be the only program of its kind on the North Shore.


The robot was also a star attraction at the annual fall celebration for NSMC donors at the Peabody Essex Museum. We are continuing to fund raise for the cost of this robot. To learn more go here and to donate, go here.
