Smart room technology
In today’s digital operating room, efficiency is vital to the quality of patient care. Banner Estrella Medical Center uses advanced technology, combining advancements in medical technology to provide surgeons with a single solution for HD imaging, state-of-the-art surgical lighting and ceiling-mounted equipment.
In addition, to provide minimally invasive options to our patients and surgical staff, Banner Estrella provides the benefits of surgical robotics with the daVinci® Surgical System.

Our Surgical Care staff focuses on a proactive approach to quality patient care that includes communication and education. From the time the patient begins preparing for surgery through the time the patient is recovering, our team emphasizes a family-centered approach to help ease any anxiety a patient may have.
To support patients and their families, Interventional Services provides a large family waiting room with flat-screen televisions, a service desk and three private consultation rooms for pre- and post-operative questions.
It is likely the patient will experience some discomfort following their surgical procedure. There are many methods available to keep pain levels to an acceptable level that will allow a patient to participate in therapy and rest. Discuss these options with the surgeon and anesthesiologist and review our additional information on pain management.
