That was the way one surgical representative described the combination of East Jefferson General Hospital technologies, surgeons, technicians and support staff. When asked to what that could be attributed, they went on to explain that EJGH has a dedicated robotics team. The surgeons work with staff who KNOW the technology, what it can do and how to best utilize it. Also, EJGH robotics staff not only went through the online training that others go through, but ours went the extra mile – literally and went to train on real cases in the Intuitive Laboratories. That level of training and commitment stands out as unique.
Our robotics team, selected for their unique qualifications and skill sets, work as a unit with the various surgeons who also must be specifically trained and credentialed to operate da Vinci. With this team in place, EJGH delivers the finest combination of human skills and compassion with technological advancement.
