The Breast Center at Methodist West Houston Hospital is designed to provide an environment of comfort, support and compassionate care.
- Cancer Center
The Methodist Cancer Center at The Methodist West Houston Hospital will be opening in the fall of 2010. The center continues Methodist?s mission of leading cancer care, and embraces the technology breakthroughs pioneered at The Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. Methodist West Houston will offer access to sought-after surgical, medical and radiation treatments and procedures that were once only available in the Medical Center, bringing advanced care closer to residents that live or work in the area. Quality care and a personalized experience are the standards which we uphold and exceed for each of our patients. We understand that cancer affects every person differently, so we work towards curing the patient - not just the disease.
- Robotic Surgery
Methodist West Houston Hospital's Department of Surgery features the da Vinci® Surgical System, which puts a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform. It gives the surgeon a three-dimensional, 10 times magnified view of the operating field, offering an excellent view of delicate tissue and organs. The da Vinci System enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision. Methodist surgeons have used robots to treat heart disease, prostate cancer, uterine tumors and fibroids and other conditions.
