Robotic Surgery in Dallas

Robot-Assisted Surgery at Methodist Dallas Medical Center

Thanks to one of the latest evolutions in surgical and robotics technologies, there is now an effective alternative to traditional open surgery and laparoscopy that allows physicians at Methodist Dallas Medical Center that can provide patients with the best of both approaches.

Robot-assisted surgery often allows surgeons to operate using only 1-2 centimeter incisions with greater precision and control than ever before. This can both minimize the pain and risks associated with large incisions, and can increase the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
