Robotic Surgery

Hospitals & Locations > Good Samaritan Hospital

Dr. BasilAt the Good Samaritan Women’s Center for Specialized Care, our goal is to make surgical treatments as minimally invasive as possible, which means less pain, a faster recovery, and most importantly, less worry for you. Several of our highly trained physicians use robotics to treat the following conditions:

  • Endometrial (uterine) cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Vaginal prolapse
  • Other conditions treated by hysterectomy

Visit our robotic surgery department for more information about robotic-assisted surgery for gynecologic conditions. While robotic-assisted surgery is considered safe and effective, it may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.

Less Invasive Surgical Option

Traditionally, the most common method to treat these conditions through surgery has involved a long abdominal incision and a significant recovery time. Robotic-assisted gynecologic surgery is less invasive, and potentially more effective than traditional methods. It offers numerous potential benefits, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer transfusions
  • Less risk of infection
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time

Though less invasive, robotic technology does not compromise the surgeon's ability to complete difficult gynecologic procedures. The surgeon works through several keyhole incisions around the abdomen. The robotic arms of the da Vinci Surgical System operate within these ports, with the surgeon in full control of his or her actions throughout the procedure. Robotic surgery allows the physician to have a better view of the surgical area, through improved magnification. In addition, the surgeon has the ability to perform very delicate procedures through enhanced control of the instruments, provided by the robot.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
