Robotic Surgery

Kern County’s leader in surgical excellence

Return to your routine sooner with robotic surgery

Recognized as a surgical center of excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), Adventist Health Bakersfield offers the most effective, least invasive surgical treatment available. When a diagnosis requires surgery, you deserve the most advanced treatment and care to quickly return to your routine.

SRC is a patient safety organization that develops and administers best-in-class accreditation programs for medical professionals, surgeons, hospitals and freestanding outpatient facilities throughout the world. Our program, led by specialty trained surgical experts, meets all key factors required for this recognition - safety, efficacy, effective outcomes and efficiency.

These factors are evident as our surgical team leverages the precision of three robotic systems to provide our patients a customized approach, best outcomes and the highest level of care. The systems include the da Vinci Surgical System, which addresses a broad array of general, urological, gynecological and other conditions; Mako Robotic-Assisted System for total knee or hip replacements; and Globus ExcelsiusGPS for spine surgeries. With these tools in hand, our surgeons perform traditional open surgery, conventional laparoscopy, and robotic and minimally invasive surgeries.

Unmatched precision and small incisions are a significant benefit of robotic and minimally invasive surgery and enable our surgeons to perform even the most complex, delicate procedures. Additional benefits include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less need for pain medications
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Shorter recovery time
  • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • Better clinical outcomes
