Beebe Healthcare surgeons to perform robot-assisted surgeries after opening new center

Lewes, Del.-based Beebe Healthcare launched its new Center for Robotic Surgery, with robot-assisted surgeries expected to start in July, the Cape Gazette reported. The center's surgeons will perform thoracic and lung surgeries first, and is expects to add gynecological and general surgery.

 The center includes a de Vinci Xi robotic surgical system, which includes a 3D high-definition camera and instruments that allow surgeons to make small incisions.

Kurt Wehberg, MD. chief of the Center for Robotic Surgery, told the Cape Gazette that using robotic surgical systems reduces patient pain by using smaller incisions, which leads to lower infection rates and saved costs for hospitals and patients.
