Robot-Assisted Surgery

Good Samaritan is proud to offer robot-assisted surgery for general surgery, gynecology, joint-replacement, and urology patients close to home.

Robot-assisted surgery enhances the skills of the surgeon by providing a high definition 3D surgical view and a greater range of motion beyond the limits of the human hand - all performed through tiny incisions, resulting in improved patient outcomes and benefits such as:

  • Decreased Risk of Complications
  • Shorter Hospital Stays
  • Smaller Incisions
  • Faster Recovery
  • Less Blood Loss
  • Less Pain

Laparoscopic surgery and robot-assisted surgery are both minimally invasive surgical techniques that offer several advantages over traditional open surgery. However, with robot-assisted surgery, the surgeon sits at a console and controls robotic arms that hold and manipulate surgical instruments. The system translates the surgeon's movements into precise actions. The robotic system provides a 3D high-definition view of the surgery site, improving visualization that can enhance the surgeon's ability to perform intricate tasks beyond the natural ability of the human hand.

da Vinci Xi® Surgical System

This revolutionary system is designed to push the boundaries of minimally invasive care. The da Vinci Xi® surgical system is versatile, making it suitable for a wide range of minimally invasive surgical procedures. It provides multi-quadrant access for gynecology, urology, and general surgeries.

Key Features of the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System:

  • Wristed Instruments: The system incorporates wristed instruments for enhanced dexterity.
  • 3DHD Visualization: Surgeons benefit from an immersive 3DHD vision system, providing a highly magnified view.
  • Intuitive Motion: The system translates the surgeon's hand movements into precise actions within the patient's body.
  • Ergonomic Design: With an ergonomic design, the da Vinci Xi® system ensures comfort for the surgeon during procedures.

Precision and Control

Like all da Vinci surgical systems, the da Vinci Xi® ensures that the surgeon retains 100% control over the robotic-assisted system. This control allows surgeons to translate their hand movements into refined, precise actions of tiny instruments inside the patient's body.

Surgeries offered using the da Vinci Xi® Surgical System:

  • Cholecystectomy
  • Colon Resection
  • Hernia Repairs
  • Hysterectomies
  • Partial Nephrectomy
  • Prostatectomy
  • Reflux Surgery

Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Surgery

Mako Robotic-Arm

The Mako Robotic-Arm is a revolutionary surgical tool that is changing the way joint replacement surgery is performed. Joint replacement is one of the most complex and involved surgical procedures performed in medicine, and requires significant prep work from both patient and doctor. The Mako-Arm is a valuable asset in this process as it can analyze CT scans and create a 3D model of a patient’s hip or knee. This detailed 3D model allows orthopedists to design a unique prosthetic customized for every patient’s unique anatomy. This means we can provide you or a loved one with a joint replacement that was truly built for you, prolonging the replacement’s estimated lifespan and reducing the risks of a failed operation.

After a unique replacement prosthetic has been created for the patient, the orthopedist will schedule them for surgery. During the operation, the surgeon operates the Mako Arm to perform very precise movements as they remove damaged bone and tissue and replace it with the prosthetic. Lab studies have shown that Mako system assisted procedures reduce disruption to soft tissue and ligaments.

Your surgery is still performed by an orthopedic surgeon, but they will be guiding the robotic arm, which can move more steadily and precisely than the human hand. Every movement made by the Mako system is guided by a human hand.

Surgeries offered using the Mako Robotic-Arm:

  • Partial knee replacement
  • Total knee replacement
  • Total hip replacement
