Safer Procedures, Shorter Recovery

With the daVinci Surgical System®, minimally invasive surgeries can be performed safer and with a shorter recovery time by creating smaller incisions and harming less of the surrounding tissues. For example:

  • Hip and knee replacements can now be performed as “tissue-sparing” procedures, which allow patients with an alternative to traditional surgery and a quicker recovery.
  • Hysterectomies can now be performed with less blood loss, fewer complications, quicker recovery time and a shorter operating time as compared with traditional open surgery hysterectomies.
  • Cardiac surgeries can now be performed with fewer complications and without having to open the patient’s chest cavity.

Many other kinds of surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques. For more information about minimally invasive surgery at Methodist Stone Oak Hospital, talk to your doctor and call the Methodist Healthcare HealthLine 210-575-0355 or toll-free 800-333-7333.
