Robotic Surgery

A Major Breakthrou​​gh in Minimally Invasive Surgery

robot-assisted surgeryBaylor Scott & White Medical Center – Uptown now offers robot-assisted surgery services, a major breakthrough in minimally invasive surgical capabilities.

Robotic surgery – also called robotically-assisted surgery – is a proven technique in which a surgeon performs minimally invasive surgery using a computer console to control very small instruments and a high-resolution camera attached to robotic arms.

Conditions​​ Treated

Robot-assisted surgery is available as an alternative to many traditional open and laparoscopic surgeries, including:

Colon and ​​R​​ectal

  • Diverticulitis of the intestine
  • Rectal prolapse


  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine conditions requiring a hysterectomy
  • Uterine fibroids (benign tumors)
  • Vaginal prolapse

General Surger​y

  • Adrenal gland tumors (benign)
  • Esophageal diverticula (pouches)
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Gallstones
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Hernia repair (hiatal and inguinal hernias)
  • Mediastinal cysts and tumors (in the middle of the chest area)
  • Obesity

Benefits of Robotic Su​rgery

​Robot-assisted surgery gives your surgeon greater precision and control over the surgical instruments than is possible with human movement alone. And compared to open surgery, it can offer additional patient benefits, including:

  • Less pain and blood loss
  • Less scarring, due to tiny surgical incisions
  • Shorter recovery time and hospital stay
  • Quicker return to your daily activities
  • Lower rate of surgical complications​
