Watch a Demo of the Dane G. Hansen Foundation Funded Surgical Robot
This video was broadcast live from HaysMed’s robotic operating room so you can see behind the scenes how robotic surgery works. Dr. Joel Fort explains robotic surgery and Dr. Zurab Tsereteli demonstrates the use of the equipment by stitching a grape back together.

The Logan, Kan. based Dane G. Hansen Foundation supplied a $500,000 grant this fall which allowed HaysMed to move forward with the implementation of the da Vinci® Xi robotic surgery platform. This upgrade represents a two-generation leap in available technology from HaysMed’s previous platform and is the most current equipment available. “The total project cost for the robot and all the associated equipment and instrumentation was out of reach without the generous vision of the Dane G. Hansen Foundation to make this technology available now for everyone in HaysMed’s vast rural service area,” said HaysMed Foundation Executive Director Jeff Brull.
