Multiple St. Luke's physicians are currently using robotic surgery
for general, urologic, gynecologic and colorectal procedures. The microscopic
"hands" of the robot provide many benefits for patients including
smaller incisions for minimal scarring, less blood loss, fewer complications,
shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
Obstetrician and Gynecologic Surgeon Susan Goltz, MD, and General Surgeon
John Bollins, DO, have both extensively perform robotic-assisted surgeries
and are the first surgeons to perform single-site robotic-assisted surgeries
in the region.
