Thanks to new robotic technology now available at Baylor
Medical Center at Frisco, many patients no
longer have to worry about lengthy down times after
surgery. The FDA-approved da Vinci® Si Surgical
System enables many surgeries to be performed less invasively,
typically leading to shorter hospital stays and faster
With surgery utilizing the da Vinci® Si Surgical System,
surgeons insert miniaturized instruments and a 3-D camera through
1- to 2-centimeter incisions. The advanced robotics allow surgeons
to view a high-definition image of the surgical site on a computer
monitor. The surgeon’s hand movements are translated into
micro-movements inside the patient’s body, enabling surgeons to
perform complex procedures with enhanced precision and control.
Baylor Frisco is proud to be the only hospital in Frisco to offer
this robotic system.
Benefits Typically Include:
- Less pain and scarring
- Preservation of vital small nerves and blood vessels
- Smaller incisions (usually 1- to 2-centimeters)
- Less blood loss during procedure
- Quicker recovery (usually one to three days)
- Lower risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stay
- Fewer transfusions
- Uterine fibroid removal (Myomectomy)
