MOUNT KISCO, N.Y.– Mount Kisco Medical Group's Dr. Cornelius R. Verhoest, recently attempted and successfully completed his first robotic-arm, single-entry, non-scar forming hysterectomy procedure at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie.

This new state-of-the-art robotic-arm procedure has many benefits for the patient, including a single-port 1-inch incision that leaves no visible scar and enables patients to go home the very same day. The robotic arm gives Verhoest better control of instruments and increased dexterity, enabling a more precise procedure. Verhoest is one of only a hand full of physicians in New York State performing this single-site hysterectomy and he is the first doctor in Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster counties to use this robotic-arm platform. Robotic-arm procedures are the next evolution in hysterectomy surgeries and Verhoest is a leading physician in the field. “Robotic surgery is the next evolution of laparscopic surgery. Single site hysterectomy platforms enable the patient to safely undergo a hysterectomy with no visible scar,” Verhoest said.

Verhoest’s practice at the Mount Kisco Medical Group is at 2507 South Road Route 9 in Poughkeepsie.
