Robotic and Minimally Invasive Procedures

 

 

Robotic and Minimally Invasive Procedures

Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center is home to West Houston's first da Vinci® Surgical System, currently used for urological and gynecological procedures, extending the surgeon's capabilities through enhanced 3-D visualization, improved dexterity, greater surgical precision, improved access, increased range of motion and reproducibility. Image-guided technology is available for use in ENT, neurosurgery and orthopedics, and voice-activated technology is available for gynecological procedures.

Our urological surgeons are leaders in robotic prostatectomy and trained in all aspects of adult and pediatric urology, including minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopic kidney, bladder and prostate surgery, urologic cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery.
