da Vinci Surgical System

What is the da Vinci Surgical System?

The da Vinci Surgical System is an effective, minimally invasive alternative to both open surgery and laparoscopy. Georgetown Community Hospital’s own da Vinci robotic platform is changing the experience of surgery for both surgeons and their patients. The robotic-trained surgeons at Georgetown Community Hospital have 20 years of collective experience, having completed over 5,000 cases.

How the da Vinci Surgical System helps patients

Our robotic surgery platform is changing the surgical experience for our patients.  Robotic surgery offers patients:

  • Less Pain
  • Shortened Hospital Stays
  • Quicker Recovery Times
  • Fewer Complications

What conditions do we treat using the da Vinci robot?

Surgical procedures performed by Dr. Eric Smith with the da Vinci Surgical System at Georgetown Community Hospital are as follows:

  • General Surgery
  • Anti-Reflux Surgery: Hiatal Hernia Repair, Nissen fundoplication
  • Bariatric Surgery: Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Gallbladder (Single-Site)
  • Hernias: Inguinal, Umbilical, Incisional, Ventral

Sharing Our Wisdom

Based on demonstrated excellence in patient outcomes, Georgetown Community Hospital has been designated as the only Mentor Case Observation site for general and bariatric robotic surgery in Kentucky. This means Dr. Smith and his team are training doctors and surgical teams across the nation on the use of robotic technology for surgery.
