Surgical Robot Provides Greater Accuracy, Patient Benefits
Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford now offers robotic surgeries using the da Vinci® Surgical System. It's a new, less invasive surgical option that, in the hands of the surgeons on the medical staff, offers leading-edge robot-assisted surgeries.
The da Vinci® system is a surgical robot that is controlled by surgeons seated at a console next to the patient's bedside. This new technology allows surgeons to treat complex surgical cases with controlled precision and accuracy. Tremor is eliminated; the right and left hand are ambidextrous; and the "hand" movements are extremely delicate.
For many patients, surgery performed using the da Vinci® system has a number of benefits, including:
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain
- A shorter hospital stay
- Quicker recovery
- Faster return to normal activities
At Texas Health HEB, procedures currently performed using the da Vinci® system include:
- Gynecologic oncology procedures
- Colon resections
