Methodist Healthcare is home to the largest multi-specialty robotic surgery program in South Texas.
Mitral valve prolapse and coronary artery disease are two common heart conditions that can lead to heart surgery when medication and lifestyle changes don't provide a solution. If you are a candidate for heart surgery, ask your doctor if there is a minimally invasive option with da Vinci robotic surgery.
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
