Leader Alan Jarrett and Councillor David Brake Attend Robot Surgery System Launch

Leader, Councillor Alan Jarrett, and Portfolio Holder for Adult Services, Councillor David Brake, were this morning delighted to attend the launch of Medway NHS Foundation Trust's new surgical robot.

The robot, a Da Vinci Xi surgical system, was launched at Medway Maritime Hospital and is designed to be able to be less invasive and carry out highly complex, multi-quadrant surgery as well as simpler, single-quadrant surgery.
