Baylor Scott & White – White Rock offers minimally invasive surgeries assisted by a robot after extensive training.
With this system, a trained surgeon uses a computer system that translates his hand movements into micro-movements of the robot that is equipped with extremely small surgical tools. The physician is in complete control of the surgery. He uses a real-time, 3-D High Definition monitor.
Robotic Surgery allows for more control over surgery procedures, with a number of potential benefits including:
- Less blood loss
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
- Shorter surgery time
- Smaller incision site
- Less scarring
- Shorter hospital stay
- Fewer complications
- In some cases, better clinical outcomes
Talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery or call us at 866.987.2603 and ask for a referral for a surgeon who specializes in robotic surgery.
