The da Vinci System is a robotic surgical platform with magnified 3D, high-definition vision designed to take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. By overcoming the challenges of traditional surgical approaches, da Vinci is changing the experience of surgery for people around the world.
Your doctor controls the da Vinci System, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body. Though it is often called a "robot," da Vinci cannot act on its own – surgery is performed entirely by your doctor.
While clinical studies support the effectiveness of the da Vinci System when used in minimally invasive surgery, individual results may vary. Surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff, including those trained in the da Vinci Surgical System, are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System or any of its affiliated hospitals.
