Robot – Assisted Surgery
daVinci Si® Robot
Baylor Scott & White – Plano has offered robotic surgery longer than any other hospital in Collin County. The new daVinci Si Surgical System, a robotic, camera-guided technology, offers increased precision for delicate or complex surgeries.
Here's how it works: Through 1- to 2-centimeter incisions, your surgeon inserts instruments and a 3-D camera, which captures a high-definition image of the surgical site. This allows your surgeon to work with greater control and accuracy. In addition, the hospital offers robotics with fluorescents technology, which helps ensure that all unhealthy tissue is removed during a procedure and that healthy tissue is unaffected.
Use of the daVinci system often results in:
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less scarring and pain
- Faster recovery
- Lower risk of infection
Baylor Scott & White – Plano currently offers robotic surgery for:
- General surgery
- Men's Health
