You know from my previous posts that I take great pride in our Rocky Mountain Robotics Institute.
I’m going to revisit the theme of “the more you do, the better you get” - this time in relation to robotic surgery. This past January, Rocky Mountain Robotics Institute surpassed 2,000 procedures, making it the most experienced program in Colorado.
Yesterday marked a special day for our robotics program, too.
Dr. Warren James, OB/GYN, reached an individual milestone, performing his 500th and 501st robotic-assisted gynecologic surgeries. And he’d be the first to say that his accomplishment is shared with our whole robotics team.
Here's Dr. James with some of MCR's OR/robotics team after completing his 501st procedure.
Dr. James helped create our program in 2004 and nationally, by number of surgeries done, he ranks in the top 5% of surgeons who perform robotic-assisted gynecologic procedures. We’re proud to have him as a key part of the kind of expertise and leadership that Rocky Mountain Robotics Institute provides for our patients.
Congratulations, Dr. James.

As I have mentioned before, PVHS hospitals have been doing robotic surgery longer than most hospitals in the United States. In fact, we offered robotic services for five years and had three robots working actively before there was even another robot in northern Colorado. As a result, our Rocky Mountain Robotics Institute has done hundreds, if not thousands, more cases than any other program in northern Colorado.
Dr. Warren James and his team perform a robotic surgery earlier this year.
In medicine, experience is everything. It is really a thrill to watch Rocky Mountain Robotics Institute at MCR and PVH maintain their leadership with this amazing technology and have people from around the world come to learn how we run our program. Earlier this month our program, along with Drs. Michael Lee and Ben Wisner of our robotic urology service, was featured on KUSA/9News’ Colorado and Company program (video). These are just two of the 20 talented robotic surgeons (including Dr. Warren James, a pioneer in robotic gynecology and one of the most experienced robotic surgeons in Colorado) and amazing staff who are working to make this program truly extraordinary! Congrats to everyone involved in the program!
Enjoy the video!
