The Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery program at Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center provides unrivaled expertise in robotic surgery. Our specially-trained surgeons use a high-tech robot to perform complex and delicate operations through very small surgical openings. The results are less pain, faster recoveries, shorter hospital stays, smaller scars, and happier patients.

In 2011, Exempla Good Samaritan was one of the first hospitals in Boulder county to acquire a surgical robot. Today, surgeons use the technology for many procedures.

The expert robotic-assisted surgery team at Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center has completed numerous hours of training to become certified in the latest robotic-assisted surgery techniques. Our surgical staff working with our surgeons has been hand-selected and is specially trained in robotic-assisted surgical procedures. You can trust the experience and quality of Exempla to be there for you every step of the way.

Robotic Surgery often provide:

  • less pain
  • faster recovery time
  • less scarring
  • less risk of infection
  • less blood loss 

What is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

In robotic-assisted surgery, the surgeon sits at a console a few feet away from you and watches a monitor through lenses that are like binoculars. Using hand and foot pedals, our surgeons controls three robotic arms. One arm holds a small tool that has a light and a camera. The other two arms hold tiny surgical tools at their tips. Our surgeons insert the tools through small cuts to perform your surgery.

The robotic arms can move in more ways than a human wrist moves. The robot's arms allow our surgeons to make very precise, complex motions that would not be possible without the robot.

Robotic-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive procedure or laparoscopic surgery. As with other types of minimally invasive surgery, you will have smaller scars than with open surgery, which uses a longer incision. You are likely to heal faster with less pain and go home from the hospital sooner with this technologically-advanced tool.
