Minimally Invasive Surgery

If your surgical procedure is a candidate for a minimally-invasive approach, we offer both laporascopic and robotic surgery.

da Vinci® Robotic Computer-Assisted Surgical System 

Today, complex conditions can be treated with minimally invasive surgery using  a da Vinci robotic surgical system. This system provides your surgeon with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. It requires only a few small incisions so you can get back to life faster without the usual recovery time needed following traditional open surgery. Methodist Hospital is home to two da Vinci robotic surgical systems.

Benefits to having surgery with a da Vinci® system include:
  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stays
  • Less blood loss
  • Minimal pain and complications
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Smaller incisions and less scaring
A few of the procedures performed by our surgeons using the da Vinci Robot include:
  • Prostatectomy
  • Pyeloplasty
  • Cystectomy
  • Nephrectomy
  • Hysterectomy
  • Sacralcolpopexy
