Robotic Surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital is a minimally-invasive surgical option that allows surgeons to operate through small, keyhole-sized incisions using enhanced imagery and incredibly precise movements.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
Until recently, for patients who have just been diagnosed with a condition requiring surgery, options included traditional surgery with a large open incision or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions, but is often limited to simple procedures.
Robotic surgery extends the surgeon’s capabilities by providing a three-dimensional view of the operating field and improves access to the surgical site through small, keyhole-sized incisions that eliminate the need for large incisions.
Robotic Surgery Procedures
At Good Samaritan Hospital, we are currently using advanced robotic surgery as a minimally-invasive alternative for traditional and more complex surgical procedures in the several areas in addition to general surgery.
Robotic Gynecologic Epicenter
Good Samaritan Hospital has been named a robotic benign gynecologic epicenter by Intuitive Surgical, Inc., the makers of the da Vinci® Si Surgical System. One of only 25 benign epicenters in the United States, and one of two in the state of Ohio, Good Samaritan Hospital is now the destination for doctors across the country to receive robotic surgery training.
