Robot-Assisted Surgery

Having surgery? Robotic surgery can mean
less pain, smaller scars and faster recovery for you!

da Vinci® is a breakthrough surgical technology that allows BSA surgeons to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. BSA is proud to be the only hospital in the Texas Panhandle to offer you the latest in robotic surgery, the da Vinci Xi. The surgeon is 100% in control of the robotic-assisted da Vinci System, which translates his/her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. BSA is dedicated to providing the best care for our patients by reducing risk, pain and recovery time.
 

With the availability of the da Vinci® Xi™ and Si™ surgical systems at BSA, you now have more options for minimally invasive urologic, gynecologic, cardiac and general surgical procedures - including prostatectomy, hysterectomy, lobectomy and colectomy.

For the patient, benefits of using the da Vinci® surgical systems may include:
  • - Significantly less pain
  • - Less blood loss
  • - Less scarring
  • - Less risk of infection
  • - Smaller incisions
  • - Faster recovery time
  • - Shorter hospital stay
  • - Fewer complications
  • - Faster return to normal daily activities
  • - In many cases, better clinical outcomes

BSA is dedicated to providing the best care for our patients with the da Vinci® Xi™ and Si™ surgical systems.
