Good Samaritan Medical Center announces Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy program launch

Good Samaritan Medical Center recently launched its Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy Program. This program represents a step forward in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, as Good Samaritan Medical Center continues its commitment to providing exceptional patient care.

The Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy Program aims to revolutionize the way pulmonary conditions are diagnosed and treated. The Ion robotic platform allows for enhanced precision, improved access to hard-to-reach areas of the lung, and minimally invasive procedures.

“At Good Samaritan Medical Center, our patients' needs and well-being come first. This dedication extends to integrating advanced technologies like with our Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy, reinforcing our commitment to deliver the best possible care and treatment,” said Sheri Montgomery, Chief Executive Officer, Good Samaritan Medical Center.

“This is a pivotal movement in advancing our patient care and enhancing the precision of diagnosis and treatment,” said Dr. Scoma, cardiothoracic surgeon at Good Samaritan Medical Center. “Operating the first case was remarkable and I am beyond excited to be carrying out the Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy Program.”

"The Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy Program represents a step forward in our ability to successfully diagnose and treat lung cancer. We can navigate the complexity of the lungs with unmatched precision thanks to this new technology. It was a privilege to have been on the first case and helped contribute to this innovative project,” said Dr. Eby, another cardiothoracic surgeon involved in the program.

The Ion robotic platform combines advanced robotics, real-time imaging, and artificial intelligence to enable bronchoscopic procedures with exceptional accuracy and safety. With its potential to improve diagnostic yields and reduce the need for more invasive interventions, the Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy Program can have a significant impact on the lives of patients suffering from lung diseases.

Good Samaritan Medical Center continuously invests in medical innovation, striving to provide the best care and treatment options to its patients.
