Robotic Surgery

Our robotic technology takes surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. It enables doctors to make smaller incisions and do surgery with greater precision.

What is robotic-assisted surgery?

In robotic-assisted surgery, a specially trained surgeon sits at a console a few feet away from you and performs your surgery using robotic arms that move in more ways than a human wrist moves. This allows the doctor to make very precise, complex motions and access areas of the body that would not be possible without the robot. 

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic-assisted surgery is considered minimally invasive, which means it doesn’t require the large incisions used for traditional – or open – surgery. While every patient’s story is different, the smaller incisions used in robotic surgery often means smaller scars, less pain and faster healing. This technology makes it possible for many patients to go home from the hospital more quickly than they would with traditional surgery.

Am I a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery?

The minimally-invasive robotic surgery is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Cancer, including bladder, colorectal, gynecologic, kidney, lung, prostate and throat
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Kidney disorders
  • Mitral valve prolapse
  • Neurosurgery
  • Obesity (through bariatric surgery)
  • Orthopedics
  • Uterine fibroids and heavy uterine bleeding
  • Uterine prolapse

Talk to your surgeon to see if robotic surgery is an option for you.

Good Samaritan Medical Center is an accredited Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

This accreditation distinguishes Good Samaritan from other surgical facilities, recognizing that Good Samaritan provides the highest quality of care to patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation from the Surgical Review Corporation. Healthcare organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and site inspection, which includes surgeons, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization or surgeon improve its care and services.
