Advancing your care

NSMC recently launched a robotic surgery program --the only program of its kind on the North Shore. During robotic surgery, a highly trained surgeon controls robotic arms from a computer console that provides him or her with high-definition, magnified and 3-D views of the surgical site. Advanced surgical technology also extends to our newest vascular operating room. This OR features some of the most advanced imaging technology in the country.

The physicians, surgeons, nurses and other members of the surgical care team have been specially trained to care for you. From performing complex surgeries to providing the highest quality post-operative care, our team strives to make your surgical experience the very best possible. The NSMC surgery team includes top-ranked surgeons from both North Shore Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital. NSMC is also repeatedly recognized for exemplary outcomes in surgical patient care.

Our collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital

North Shore Medical Center maintains a long-standing collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, which gives you access to world-class care right in your community. NSMC and MGH work closely together, sharing common quality and safety standards, best practices, a common medical record and a team approach to caring for patients. Many of our surgeons are either on staff at MGH or work side-by-side MGH experts at a collaborative surgical practice in the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care in Danvers. MGH also provides NSMC’s anesthesia service both in Salem and in Danvers. By bringing together these talented experts in a convenient location, NSMC offers patients on the North Shore the best choice for care.
