Staying in the forefront of medical technology, Methodist Willowbrook Hospital now offers patients robotic surgery to treat heart disease, uterine tumors and fibroids, prostate and other cancers, as well as obesity and many common conditions prevalent in today's society.
The specially trained physicians and medical staff have added the advanced, minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgical System to the surgical options available to patients, in order to improve surgical outcome, reduce recovery time and improve overall standard of care.
Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is the first hospital in northwest Houston to offer robotic surgery and provide patients with a less invasive surgical option.
The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons with a magnified, three-dimensional view, which permits optimal viewing of delicate organs and tissue and precise maneuvering in the operating filed. Fine instruments controlled by physicians from the state–of–the–art robotic platform provide pinpoint accuracy and create much smaller incisions and less obtrusive presence for some of the most complex and delicate procedures.
Since introduced over five years ago, the da Vinci Surgical System has been used in thousands of procedures, proving its safety and effectiveness. The National Library of Medicine has archived scientific data supporting clinical findings on the significant benefits of robotic surgery over open or laparoscopic surgical procedures.
