daVinci Si® Robot

Baylor Scott & White - Plano has offered robotic surgery longer than any other hospital in Collin County. The new daVinci Si Surgical System, a robotic, camera-guided technology, offers increased precision for delicate or complex surgeries. 

Here’s how it works: Through 1- to 2-centimeter incisions, your surgeon inserts instruments and a 3-D camera, which captures a high-definition image of the surgical site. This allows your surgeon to work with greater control and accuracy. In addition, Baylor Scott & White - Plano is the only hospital in Collin County to offer robotics with fluorescents technology, which helps ensure that all unhealthy tissue is removed during a procedure and that healthy tissue is unaffected.  

Baylor Scott & White - Plano also is the only hospital in Collin County to offer robotic surgery for pelvic prolapse,

Use of the daVinci system often results in:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Less scarring and pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Lower risk of infection 

Baylor Scott & White - Plano currently offers robotic surgery for:

  • Gynecology
  • General surgery
  • Gallbladder
  • Men’s Health
  • Urology
  • Colon-rectal 

Talk with your surgeon about whether robotic assisted surgery is an option for you.
