Introducing the Robotic Surgical System

The robotic surgical system is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Georgetown Community Hospital's robotic surgery platform is changing the experience of surgery for both surgeons and their patients. The robotic-trained surgerons at Georgetown Community Hospital have 12 years of collective experience, having completed over 2,500 cases.

In medicine, precision matters

What's in it for you? Because robotic surgery allows for smaller incisions and provides your doctor with unparalleled precision during an operation, many patients experience less pain, shortened recovery times and fewer complications. 

"I am using the robotic technology to augment my surgical skills, and doing so allows me to go beyond the limits of the human hand." - Dr. Eric Smith, General & Bariatric Surgeon

"The robotic technology significantly enhances minimally invasive surgery. Patient outcomes are improved, and there is often less pain postoperatively with shorter recovery times." - Dr. Danielle Dietz, General Surgeon

"Minimally invasive robotic surgery has significantly enhanced urological surgery with better patient outcomes and shorter hospital stays." - Dr. Tommy Slabaugh, Jr., Urologist

How precise is robotic surgery?
