Springfield, TN, – TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center is pleased to announce the completion of its 100th robotic surgery as part of an effort to enhance surgical services available to Robertson County and the surrounding communities. The surgical robotics program was introduced in October of 2022 and offers a wide range of robotic surgeries that address common issues including colorectal, prostate, and urological issues. The hospital recently began offering robotic surgery as an option for certain gynecological procedures.

“This is an exciting milestone and another example of how TriStar NorthCrest has continued to invest in the healthcare needs of our community over the past year,” said Sean Patterson, chief executive officer at TriStar NorthCrest. “The addition of minimally invasive robotic surgery allows our community to receive high-quality care with the latest technology close to home.”

“The surgical robot was an exciting addition for the hospital, our community, and the surgical team,” said Keith Goldberg, MD, FACS, general surgeon at Tristar NorthCrest. “As a surgeon, I want to ensure I provide high-quality care to the patients I serve and having the ability to offer a minimally-invasive surgical option that facilitates quicker recovery times is certainly a benefit to my patients.”

In addition to the surgical robotics program, the hospital recently expanded women’s health services to include comprehensive OB/GYN care and 3D breast imaging, enhanced patient care rooms with new beds and monitors, and upgraded equipment across the hospital. The hospital received the 2022 Get with the Guidelines Gold Plus Award from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for their excellence in stroke treatment services, and it continues to serve as a certified Chest Pain Center and Primary Stroke Center.

“These improvements and recognitions are tangible evidence of the hospital’s dedication to ensure our patients have access to safe, high-quality care,” said Patterson. “We are proud of the progress we have made in just one year. As we hold fast to our vision of setting the pace for healthcare excellence, we will continue to seek out ways our hospital can invest in the health of our community.”
