Robotic Surgery Procedures

You can depend on Methodist Health System for advanced medical care and treatments. Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical and robotics technologies, there is an effective alternative to traditional open surgery. Minimally invasive robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to operate using only 1 – 2 centimeter incisions, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery.

Potential Benefits of Robotic Surgery

For most patients, the potential benefits of robotic surgery over traditional surgery, include:

  • Less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities

We perform the following robotic-assisted surgeries:

  • General Surgery
    • Appendectomy (appendix removal)
    • Hernia repair
    • Cholecystectomy (gall bladder surgery)
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Gynecologic surgery
  • Thoracic surgery
    • Lung Tumor Removal
  • Bariatrics (weight loss) surgery
  • Heart surgery
  • Head and Neck surgery
  • Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic (HPB) surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Transplant surgery
  • Urologic surgery
    • Prostatectomy (prostate removal)

*While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci® Surgical System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Robotic-assisted surgery may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
