Your choice for robotic surgery

We are committed to providing advanced surgical services for patients in the Dallas/Forth Worth area and beyond. The robotic surgery specialists at our hospitals work with expert multidisciplinary teams from related fields, including bariatrics, orthopedics and women's health.

What are the benefits of robotic surgery?

Robotic technology allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery through an incision roughly the size of a dime. The robotic system seamlessly translates the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments.

Benefits of robot-assisted surgery may include:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • More nerves spared
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection

Leaders in single-site general robotic surgeries

Medical City Healthcare is at the forefront of single-incision robotic surgery, which is done through a tiny incision in the belly button. This technique can be used instead of more invasive methods used in traditional laparoscopic or robotic surgery. The end result for patients may include less scarring and discomfort and fewer complications, all of which can shorten hospital stays and recovery times.

Surgeons at our hospitals not only perform minimally invasive robotic surgeries for many gastrointestinal conditions, including gallbladder and hernia removal, they also teach robotic surgery procedures to other physicians from all over the U.S.

Procedures we offer

Specially trained surgeons offer a wide range of minimally invasive and robot-assisted options in specialty areas, including:

Robotic-assisted hernia repair surgery

Medical City Healthcare hospitals offer advanced, minimally invasive, robot-assisted hernia surgery for all types of hernias. Whether you have a new hernia injury or have been suffering with hernia pain for a long time, our highly skilled gastroenterologists (GI doctors) and general surgeons can provide relief using advanced tools, treatments and technology.

Types of hernia repair

  • Groin hernia repair
    • Inguinal hernia
    • Femoral hernia
    • Pediatric groin hernia
  • Hiatal hernia repair
  • Umbilical hernia repair
  • Ventral hernia repair, including incisional hernia repair for hernias caused by previous surgeries

Faster hernia surgery recovery time

If you've been putting off a hernia surgery because you thought there was a long hernia repair surgery recovery time, you'll be glad to know that the benefits of robotic-assisted hernia surgery may include a shorter hospital stay, less pain and discomfort, smaller incisions and a faster recovery time than traditional open or laparoscopic hernia surgeries.

Candidates for laparoscopic hernia surgery (minimally invasive surgery) may also be candidates for a robot-assisted hernia surgery, which offers many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced vision, precision and control
  • A 3D view inside your body
  • Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
  • Small incisions for quicker healing, less scarring and reduced risk of infection.

Relief from hernia symptoms

Most hernias will not heal on their own. Hernia repair surgery is necessary to push the abdominal material back where it belongs and to repair the abdominal wall.

A strangulated hernia (one that has become entangled or entrapped and has had its blood supply cut off) requires immediate, emergency hernia repair surgery. If you are having hernia symptoms, such as if the hernia is large or protruding or if the hernia is causing pain, see your doctor immediately and ask if robotic hernia surgery is right for you.
