Our Services

Surgical Care

At Samaritan Medical Center, our team provides a full range of advanced surgical and outpatient care and has been recognized nationally and regionally for their commitment to the quality of surgical care they deliver.

Highly skilled surgeons, nurses, technicians and support staff perform traditional open surgeries, laproscopic procedures and advanced robotic surgery. If the need for an operation arises, your care team will discuss all of the options available to you and help select the method with the best possible outcomes for your unique circumstances.

Samaritan offers some of the most advanced surgical tools in the area, such as the da Vinci® Surgical Robotics System. The da Vinci technology enables surgeons to perform complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. This means significantly less pain, less scarring, a shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal daily activities.

During a surgical procedure at the Samaritan Surgical Care Center, family members can use our SmarTrac system to track the progress of their loved one throughout the surgical procedure. The system provides step by step updates on where the patient is and when visitors are allowed to see the patient.
