  • Robotic surgeries cost less, have better outcomes and a quicker patient recovery. Dr. Cynthia Geocaris of Aurora BayCare has performed 1,000 robotic assisted surgeries and is a lead mentor for other surgeons learning robotic hernia surgery. "I wouldn't be able to do what I do without the team we have," she commented.

    The robotic assisted technology allows surgeons to work through much smaller incisions and makes for a quicker recovery for patients.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Aurora Health Care.


    Third time's a charm. I had a phone interview first, but didn't get that position. The HR representative then passed my information on to one of the hiring managers. I had a face to face interview. Unfortunately, I did not get that position. Then the HR representative passed my information to another hiring manager. I had a face to face interview one day and got a call later that day with an offer. Knowing that the HR representative went above and beyond to get me interviews made me feel great in knowing that I was wanted.
