If you're considering surgery, you now have greater access to the most advanced minimally invasive procedures in Colorado. HealthONE is proud to offer more centers, more surgeons and more procedures than any other hospital system in the state. The use of minimally invasive surgical techniques including the Da Vinci® robotic surgery system minimizes risk of complications during the operation and reduces the amount of recovery time after the operation. Robotic surgery technology is commonly used in minimally invasive surgery. Many common procedures, like a hysterectomy or a hernia surgery, are done using robotic surgery.

To find out if you may be a candidate for this exciting surgical advancement, talk to your doctor about da Vinci robotic surgery options. That’s what Gwen did.
“Talking to other people, it just seems that da Vinci surgery is so much easier than traditional surgery,” Gwen, a HealthONE hospital patient, says.
“When the doctors told me it was an option, much less invasive and with the faster healing time, I was happy to take advantage of it. I was so pleased with the whole experience. The doctors and the staff were wonderful, and I didn’t need any prescription drugs or narcotics during my recovery.”
Gwen received six small incisions and was up and walking the same afternoon of her surgery. In fact, she was able to shower and go home the next day. Now, she doesn’t hesitate to tell everyone about her experience with da Vinci. “I’m so glad I had faith in the robot!” she says.
