A pioneering leader in minimally invasive care.
The new da Vinci Surgical System is part of a long tradition of groundbreaking minimally invasive treatment at Carroll Hospital Center. It began when Dr. Paul Vietz performed the nation’s first laparoscopic hysterectomy here in 1991. Since then, Dr. Vietz’s revolutionary approach has been taught in hospitals throughout the world—and Carroll Hospital Center has remained committed to staying at the leading edge of minimally invasive surgical care. It’s a commitment that helped us earn Maryland’s #1 ranking for patient safety in overall surgical care by CareChex®, a rating service of The Delta Group.
