Media invitation - Meet da Vinci - The first surgical robot of its kind in Quebec



    MONTREAL, Feb. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Continuing in its tradition of medical
excellence, the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) is proud to announce the arrival
of the latest in 3-D, high-definition robotic-assisted surgery in Quebec-the
da Vinci(R) Surgical System.
    Dr. Jacques Corcos, Director of the JGH Robotics Program, invites you to
see the robot in action and gain insight into its ground-breaking surgical
capabilities in urology, gynaecology, and, eventually cardiology. One of only
three such systems in Canada, da Vinci is state-of-the-art technology enabling
surgeons to provide patients with minimally invasive procedures resulting in
less pain, loss of blood, and shorter hospital stays.
