HealthONE® Introduces the Colorado Center for Robotic Surgery(SM)
Date:6/15/2012

DENVER, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- People who may be considering surgery for a disease or medical condition now have greater access to the most advanced type of minimally invasive procedures available in Colorado. Cherry Creek Shopping Center visitors will be able to "test drive" the new da Vinci Robots in a one-of-a-kind experience on June 18 in the Center's Grand Court.

HCA-HealthONE® LLC recently expanded the robotic surgery program – the Colorado Center for Robotic Surgery – with additional new robotic devices at five sites throughout the Denver metro area. Locations include North Suburban Medical Center, Rose Medical Center, Sky Ridge Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center and The Medical Center of Aurora. The Colorado Center for Robotic Surgery offers more locations, more surgeons and more procedures than any other hospital system in Colorado.

Robotic surgery combines the human touch of highly trained surgeons with the precision of today's most advanced technologies. HealthONE medical experts use the da Vinci® robotic system so patients can experience:

  • Less blood loss
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster return to activity
  • Less scarring
  • Greater sparing of nerves

Surgeons at the Colorado Center for Robotic Surgery locations include a wide-range of board-certified specialists with expertise in gynecology; gynecologic cancers; prostate conditions; kidney disease and partial kidney removal; colorectal cancer and general surgery. In some procedures, particularly gallbladder, surgeons are able to operate using a single-site for less scarring.

"We are pleased to offer our patients the most sophisticated, leading-edge treatments that help them return more quickly to doing the things they love most," says Dr. George Bussey, HealthONE Chief Medical Officer "If patients have less blood loss, shorter stays and recover quicker, then we are improving care for them."

The public can try their hands at this amazing technology and meet several experts in robotic surgery at the Center next Monday:

Monday, June 18
11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Grand Court
3000 East 1st Avenue, Denver, CO 80206
