Robot-Assisted Surgery 

Making Major Surgeries Seem Minor

Thanks to new robotic technology now available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Irving, many patients no longer have to worry about lengthy down times after surgery. The FDA-approved daVinci® Si Surgical System enables many surgeries to be performed less invasively, typically leading to shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.

With surgery utilizing the daVinci® Si Surgical System, surgeons insert miniaturized instruments and a 3-D camera through 1- to 2-centimeter incisions. The advanced robotics allow surgeons to view a high-definition image of the surgical site on a computer monitor. The surgeon's hand movements are translated into micro-movements inside the patient's body, enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures with enhanced precision and control.

Baylor Scott & White - Irving offers this advanced robotic system to Irving, Las Colinas, Coppell, Grand Prairie and surrounding communities.

Benefits Typically Include:

  • Less pain and scarring
  • Preservation of vital small nerves and blood vessels
  • Smaller incisions (usually 1- to 2-centimeters)
  • Less blood loss during procedure

  • Lower risk of infection
