robotic surgery team

Our center is comprised of the lower Hudson Valley’s leading Robotic Surgeons with expertise in Urologic, Gynecologic, Colorectal, Bariatric and Hernia surgery. The surgeons selected Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, and Surgical Technicians to form the renowned robotic surgery team. Together, the Good Samaritan Robotic Surgery team demonstrates excellence and pride in caring for our patients. 

Robotic surgery is an option all patients need to explore when diagnosed with a condition requiring surgical intervention. If you, a relative, or a friend are looking for improved options to the traditional scalpel, robotic surgery is a must see.

What is Robotic Surgery?

It is a method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the movements of the robot using a computerized console. The robot is manufactured by the Intuitive company and is also known as the da Vinci. 

Traditional laparoscopy also uses tiny incisions, but the instruments are not attached to a robot. The addition of the robot to the surgical team allows the surgeon to manipulate tissue, suture material, and attached instruments beyond the natural ability of the human hand. This is a major reason why patients experience less pain and bleeding with robotic surgery.

A county wide contest was held in 2017 for all sixth grade students to name our robot. The winning name chosen was Michelangelo. Our Robotic team has made Michelangelo a member of our family since 2012.

The Robotic Surgical System provides Good Samaritan Hospital surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, placing our surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic surgery platform. The Robotic System enables our surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. For the patient, this results in: 

• Significantly less pain 
• Less blood loss 
• Less scarring 
• Shorter recovery time 
• A faster return to normal daily activities 
• And in many cases, better clinical outcomes
