Precision matters.

That’s why Methodist Healthcare uses advanced robotic surgical systems and specially trained surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures. Our hospitals utilize three different systems, each tailored to a specific purpose ranging from general surgery and cardiac procedures to joint replacements and spine surgery. These surgical systems allow surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control to perform accurate, effective procedures.

A robot is not performing your surgery...

Our surgeons are. Just like our surgeons control a scalpel or needle in a traditional surgery, they have precise control over each movement of the machine in a robotic-assisted surgery. The robotic systems are simply tools that allow for more detailed manipulation of surgical instruments, which results in:

  • A faster recovery
  • Fewer complications
  • Less need for narcotic pain medicine
  • Smaller incisions for minimal scarring
  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Less blood loss
