Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco offers robot-assisted surgery services, including the da Vinci® Surgical System, a major breakthrough in minimally invasive surgical capabilities, and the Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgical System that enables a more predictable surgical experience when performing joint replacement surgery.

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

DaVinci XI Robotic Surgical System – Surgeon-Led Minimally Invasive Precision Technology

Thanks to new robotic technology now available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco, many patients no longer have to worry about lengthy downtimes after surgery. Our DaVinci XI Robotic Surgical System enables many surgeries to be performed in a less invasive way, typically leading to shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.  Baylor Frisco is proud to have performed the first fully robotic bariatric sleeve in Collin County.

Benefits Typically Include:

  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Minimal scarring
Robotic Surgery can be utilized for a number of surgeries including:

The surgeon works from the console within the operating room that uses 3D CT-based planning software so your surgeon can know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan. In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant.  This technology allows more precision and a shorter recovery time for total and partial knee replacements.

Augmedics – Xvision – 3D Visualization for Spine Surgery

Xvision Spine allows surgeons to visualize their patients’ 3D spinal anatomy during surgery as if they had “x-ray vision,” helping them to accurately navigate instruments and implants while looking directly at the patient, rather than a remote screen. The XVS consists of a transparent near-eye-display headset and all elements of a traditional navigation system. It accurately determines the position of surgical tools, in real-time, and superimposes them on the patient’s CT data.

The navigation data is then projected onto the surgeon’s retina using the headset, allowing him or her to simultaneously look at the patient and see the navigation data without averting their eyes to a remote screen during the procedure.

ExcelsiusGPS® provides improved visualization of spine surgery patient anatomy through the procedure to help optimize patient treatment. The system is designed to streamline the surgical workflow and reduce radiation exposure to patients, surgeons, and staff. This revolutionary robotic navigation platform is the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate trajectory alignment in spine surgery.

This robotic navigation is the combination of robotic technology and navigation technology in a single platform.  Based on a surgeon’s dictated plan, the robotic arm navigates to the preplanned surgical area.  A camera tracks the robotic arm and the instrumentation, much like GPS in a car.

The Rosa Knee System supports surgeons by providing a high level of accuracy as they perform Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA).  It has features that assist with bone resections as well as the assessment of soft tissues to facilitate accuracy intra-operatively.  This robotic technology is surgeon-centered, accurate, efficient, and data-driven.  This technology is:

  • Surgeon-Centered

  • Accurate

  • Efficient

  • Data-Driven

  • Safer, Faster, and Less Painful Results

This technology can be used for Total Knee Replacement at Baylor Frisco.  Click here for surgeons who utilize the Rosa Robotic Orthopedic System.  Click here to learn more about our Total Joint Replacement Department.  Click here to find a Total Joint Replacement Surgeon on the staff at Baylor Frisco.

The Persona IQ – Smart Knee is the first and only trackable knee implant for total knee replacement.  It is designed to give y our surgeon more options to better match your bone’s anatomy that allows you to remain connected to your healthcare team, every step of the way.  On the bottom portion of the implant, a small “smart” stem extension is attached. This stem contains sensors that capture information like your range of motion, stride length, walking speed, and step count. You, your surgeon, and your medical care team will be able to view your data via a secure online portal. The information collected by Persona IQ allows your physician to remotely view your knee data throughout your recovery.
