Robot-assisted, minimally invasive surgery at Methodist Health System in North Texas

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 patients with the best of both approaches.

Robot-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.

There are numerous potential benefits of robotic surgery for most patients over traditional surgery. Those potential benefits include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Less scaring
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities
