Robot-assisted surgery in Derry, New Hampshire

Parkland Medical Center's robotic technology helps surgeons operate with greater precision and control and gives them better access to hard-to-reach areas. This means our surgeons can perform even extremely complex operations through small incisions.

Robot-assisted technology

Parkland uses the da Vinci® surgery system—widely considered the most effective and least invasive surgical technology available. This system combines computer and robotic equipment to treat a broad range of conditions.

Robotic surgery with the da Vinci® system follows this process:

  • The system uses tiny incisions—much smaller than those of traditional surgery—to insert miniature instruments and a high-definition 3D camera.
  • Your surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution 3D image of the surgical site.
  • The robotic equipment precisely translates your surgeon's hand movements to perform the operation.

Our surgeons can use robot-assisted technology for many procedures, including:
