Dr Wagner to Lecture at the Hartford Medical Society meeting June 18

Dr. Joseph Wagner, Hartford Specialists Urologic Surgeon and a pioneer in Robotic Surgery, will speak at the Hartford Medical Society meeting on June 18, 2007 on the History of Robotic Surgery.
Dr. Wagner is a pioneer in robotic surgery, having performed some of the first cases immediately after the FDA approved the da Vinci™ Surgical System in 2001.
The robots in use at Hartford Hospital are The  from Intuitive Surgical, Inc. They are the next generation of surgery: precise, minimally-invasive procedures that can mean less trauma, blood loss and hospital time for the patient. They allow surgeons to perform minimally-invasive procedures as if they were performing open surgery, but without the fatigue experienced in a long procedure.
Dr. Wagner earned a BA from Amherst College in 1985, and a MD at University of Connecticut in 1989. He served his internship in surgery and residency in urology at Boston University Medical Center and a fellowship at National Cancer Institute in Urologic-Oncology 1995-1997.
Appointments with Dr. Wagner can be scheduled by calling 860-947-8500.
