Dessert With a Doc: Using Robotic Surgery To Treat GI Problems

Wednesday, April 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

The benefits of robotic-assisted surgery are many, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and need for transfusion
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • A faster recovery and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions resulting in minimal scarring

Join us for a presentation and discussion to learn how robotic-assisted surgery can be used for colon resections, hernia repair, and other related conditions.

Presented by Aziz Benbrahim, MD, this program is cosponsored by MidState Medical Center.

Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
