Robotic Surgery at Houston Physicians’ Hospital
Houston Physicians’ Hospital features state-of-the-art, robotics-assisted technology as part of our commitment to superior patient outcomes. Our in-house robotics-assisted technology, the da Vinci Surgical Systems and the Mako Robotic-Arm System, provide world-class technology featuring the latest advances in biomedical robotics. If you or a loved one is facing a surgical procedure, our specially trained surgeons can recommend these leading technologies as part of your treatment.
Houston Physicians’ Hospital offers robotics-assisted surgical methods in the following specialties:
- Gynecology (da Vinci Surgical Systems)
- Urology (da Vinci Surgical Systems)
- General Surgery (da Vinci Surgical Systems)
- Orthopedics (Mako Robotic Arm System)
Using highly specialized computer equipment within the operating room, our surgeons provide minimally invasive, robotics-assisted surgical options. Complex procedures benefit from the additional flexibility, precision, and control advantages of robotic surgery, making your treatment more effective and efficient. These revolutionary, minimal-incision technologies reduce post-surgery recovery times and provide increased patient comfort during postoperative healing.
By inserting a small camera to view the affected area, our surgeons use highly-accurate computerized controls to assess your body’s health condition. Then, using 3D high-definition images, they perform exploratory or treatment surgery by controlling surgical instruments and visual tools contained within the operating room’s console.
