What would it be like to test drive a robot in a surgical operating room? Methodist Mansfield Medical Center and Mansfield ISD are partnering to give elementary students with an interest in robotics a chance to find out.
MISD elementary students will have an opportunity to name the da Vinci® robotic surgical system at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center as well as learn about its unique ability to assist surgeons to help patients recover more quickly. On Thursday, April 11 OR Director Shelley Cook discussed the da Vinci robotic surgical system used at the hospital with robotic team students at Willie Brown Elementary School:
da Vinci® naming contest
The student who submits the winning name will receive a commemorative award certificate and an opportunity for the student and up to five friends to have an opportunity to operate with the da Vinci Surgical System and take a behind the scenes tour of the hospital. The winning class will also receive a healthy pizza party along with a special video of the da Vinci in action.
