Crouse Hospital and the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) are partnering to present Let’s Operate!, a two-day exhibit to provide kids and adults with a unique, insider’s view of how surgeons are using advanced robotic technology to perform minimally invasive surgery.
The centerpiece of the exhibit will be the da Vinci surgical robot from Intuitive Surgical. Crouse surgeons will be on hand to provide demonstrations using the equipment, including the system’s simulator and robotic arms. Participants will get to sit behind the system’s console and actually operate the robot’s four extending arms, while practicing their hand-eye coordination, instrument manipulation and other surgical skills. Crouse surgeons will also share information about the various surgical procedures performed using robotic technology, as well as treatment options within their respective subspecialties.
