At Medical Center of McKinney, your surgical options include state-of-the-art minimally invasive da Vinci® robotic surgery.
Surgery can be a daunting consideration. However at Medical Center of McKinney it can be a little less so. Here, your surgical options include state-of-the-art minimally invasive da Vinci® robotic-assisted procedures.
Robotic surgery involves a highly-trained surgeon making very small incisions through which he or she inserts small-scale surgical instruments including a three-dimensional camera. The camera provides images that the surgeon uses when precisely maneuvering the surgical tools via a robotic arm. The nature of da Vinci® robotic surgery results in benefits including:
- less bleeding
- less scarring
- a reduced risk of infection
- a faster recovery (typical hospital stay is as short as a day or two)
- an overall better outcome than compared to traditional surgery
Talk with your doctor to determine if robotic-assisted surgery is a recommended course of action for you. It's sometimes a better choice than traditional surgery, and in other cases it can make surgery an option when it otherwise wouldn't be possible. Note that surgeries that are often performed successfully using this technology include urological, cardiovascular, gynecological and general procedures including:
- mitral valve repair
- coronary artery bypass grafting
- gallbladder removal
- adrenal gland removal
- lung lobe removal
- esophagus removal
- colorectal procedures
- hernia repair
- prostate removal
