Surgery: What you can expect

The thought of undergoing surgery is intimidating. It’s a big deal to us, too. No matter your diagnosis, we are here with you before, during and after surgery.  From there, you will be given instructions for every step of the process. 

Robotic Surgery

At Good Samaritan Medical Center, we offer da Vinci® robotic surgery. The robot allows our physicians to perform procedures using only small incisions. Because of its precision, da Vinci often means a shorter recovery time and less pain for you. Find out if your surgery is a candidate for da Vinci.
