MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- For many patients, undergoing surgery puts their lives on hold. Prep and recovery time, limited mobility and lengthy hospital stays all often accompany even the most routine procedures. However, Northern Westchester Hospital is working to rewrite the surgical norm, and is helping patients transition from hospital to home in a matter of days.

A director and tennis pro at a local fitness club, Bob learned he would require surgery to undergo a colon resection. Since returning to what he loved was important for Bob -- both professionally and personally -- he met with the minimally invasive surgery experts at Northern Westchester Hospital to discuss treatment options. "I've always had great results at Northern Westchester Hospital," said Bob. "I right away called Dr. Wishner."

Under the guidance of Dr. Jerald Wishner, Bob opted for surgery through the da Vinci Surgical System, a procedure commonly performed at NWH. The robot-assisted operation offers surgeons enhanced visualization and precision at the surgical site, while its compact surgical instruments allow for minimal incisions. As a result, patients experience less blood loss, less risk of complications and an easier, quicker road to recovery. In Bob's case, this meant doing what he loved, sooner than ever before.

During his brief post-operative stay, Bob marveled at the bedside care he received. "The staff was over-the-top kind, and were always helping," said Bob. "I would absolutely recommend having surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital; every department is terrific."

Today, Bob has returned to the court faster than ever, thanks to the award winning staff and services available at Northern Westchester Hospital.
