HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center is the first hospital in Arizona to perform 20,000 minimally invasive robotic surgeries.

In support of HonorHealth’s commitment to ensure patients have access to leading-edge technologies, officials there are reporting the experienced surgical team uses robotic technology to provide a broad range of minimally invasive procedures in cardiac surgery, urology, oncology, gynecology, and general surgery.

“Robotic technology allows us to give our patients the best surgical outcomes with minimal recovery time, a shorter hospital stay, smaller incisions and reduced pain,” shared Richard Gillespie, MD, a board certified thoracic surgical oncologist and physician at the HonorHealth Heart and Lung Surgical Group. “These important benefits from the state-of-the-art surgical equipment make a huge difference to our patients and their results.”

Jose Romo, COO at HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, echoed a similar sentiment.

“Technology in healthcare is advancing and so are we,” he said. “We’re proud to provide our patients with the latest medical technologies offering them access to the most current solutions to solve today’s healthcare issues.”

Only 19 other medical centers in the United States have reached this 20,000-procedure milestone, HonorHealth officials say.
