Thanks to the latest evolution in surgical and robotics technologies, there is an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and laparoscopy that allows physicians at Methodist Health System to provide you the best of both approaches.

Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System allows surgeons to operate using only 1 – 2 centimeter incisions, but with greater precision and control than ever before, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
