Robotic Assisted Surgery

It never hurts to have an extra set of hands. At Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, rest assured you are in the best of hands—those of our surgeons—who are taking advantage of the latest robotic technology to extend their reach and improve your care.

We were the nation’s first epicenter for bariatric and general robotic surgery, meaning surgeons from across the country and around the world travel to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center to learn the most leading edge procedures from our experts—your surgeons.


In July 2022, Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center achieved a Center of Excellence in accreditation from Surgical Review Corporation in Robotic Surgery.

Ours is the first facility in Maine to hold the designation, which means that our robotic surgical team passed rigorous inspections, meeting internationally recognized standards in surgical quality and safety in these areas. Learn more.
