Methodist Healthcare is home to the largest multi-specialty robotic surgery program in South Texas.
At Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital and Metropolitan Methodist Hospital, we help patients restart their lives through surgical weight loss treatment. If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35+ and experience obesity related conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart disease, gallbladder disease, asthma or other conditions, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.
When medication and lifestyle changes don't provide a solution, ask your doctor about minimally invasive option with da Vinci robotic surgery including:
The da Vinci System allows for minimally invasive, robotically assisted surgery that is completely controlled by your surgeon at all times. Robotic surgery offers several potential benefits compared to traditional surgery or laparoscopy including:
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stay
- Lower blood loss
- Lower rate of complications
- Small incisions for minimal scarring
