Robotic Surgery

A leader in robotic surgery.

Nobody looks forward to surgery, but it may sometimes be your best option for care. If you and your physician feel that surgery is right for you, you can explore the different options for the surgery you need.

Traditional open surgery, where a surgeon operates with handheld instruments through a large cut (incision), may be the first method that comes to mind. However, you could also be a candidate for a less invasive approach requiring just a few small cuts, called minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery includes laparoscopic surgery and robotic-assisted surgery.

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

Why robotic surgery?

Surgeons who utilize robotics find that for many procedures they have enhanced precision, flexibility and control during the operation and the system allows them to better see the site, compared with traditional techniques. Using robotic surgery, surgeons can perform delicate and complex procedures that may be difficult or impossible with other methods.  Click here to see the precision robotic technology as a surgeon peels a grape!

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

Thanks to new robotic technology available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco, many surgical patients no longer worry about lengthy downtimes. Our DaVinci XI Robotic Surgical System enables many surgeries to be performed less invasively, 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.

Where innovation meets precision:

Precision Redefined: Robotic surgery offers unparalleled precision and dexterity, translating the surgeon’s hand movements into minute, controlled actions within your body.

Minimally Invasive Approach: Smaller incisions result in less pain, minimal scarring, and a faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery, allowing patients to get back to their daily life sooner.

Enhanced Visualization: High-definition 3D visualization allows our expert surgeons to navigate complex anatomy with enhanced clarity, improving the overall surgical experience.

Personalized Care: With robotics, our surgeons can tailor procedures to your unique anatomy, optimizing outcomes and reducing the risk of complications.

Wide Range of Procedures: From urological and gynecological surgeries to complex procedures in various specialties, the technology is adaptable and applicable to a diverse array of medical conditions.

Confidence and Expertise: Over 40 of skilled surgeons are trained in utilizing da Vinci technology, ensuring that you’re in the hands of professionals who are proficient with this advanced system.

Robotic surgery with the DaVinci Xi can be utilized for many surgeries, including:

Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgical System

The Mako System combines the expertise of our skilled surgeons with the precision and capabilities of robotic technology, offering a range of benefits that can enhance the surgical experience:

  • Precision: The MAKO System provides our surgeons with a high level of accuracy and control, allowing for precise surgical movements.
  • Personalized Treatment: Through advanced imaging and 3D modeling, the MAKO System creates a personalized surgical plan tailored to the patient’s unique anatomy, leading to optimized outcomes.
  • Minimally Invasive: With the assistance of the MAKO robotic arm, procedures can often be performed through smaller incisions, resulting in reduced scarring, less pain, and faster recovery times.
  • Faster Recovery: Patients often experience quicker healing and can return to their daily activities sooner due to the minimally invasive nature of MAKO-assisted surgery.
  • Joint-Preserving Solutions: For orthopedic procedures, the MAKO System enables our surgeons to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible, promoting joint longevity.
  • Wide Range of Procedures: From partial knee and hip replacements to complex orthopedic procedures, the MAKO System can be applied across a variety of specialties.

How it works

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.
