General Surgery

Samaritan Medical Center proudly offers the da Vinci Surgical System for certain general surgery procedures.

da Vinci® Surgery is used during the following general surgery conditions at Samaritan:

  • Gallbladder Removal (Cholecystectomy)
  • Many different Hernia Repairs
  • Colon Surgery
  • Anti-Reflux

Learn more about Gallbladder removal with the da Vinci® Surgical System.

Unlike traditional robotic surgeries requiring three to five small incisions, this technology allows for a single incision in the belly button where instruments are placed and the diseased gallbladder is removed.

Gallbladder disease affects 10-15% of adults in the United States and Europe. According to the American College of Surgeons, surgery is the recommended treatment for gallbladder pain from gallstones and non-functioning gallbladders. More than 1 million people in the U.S. have their gallbladder removed each year. Many people who require gallbladder removal are candidates for the robotic-assisted surgery.

The da Vinci Surgery offers patients facing general surgery many potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal daily activities
