Robotic Surgery

A New Day. A New Way.

The physicians and staff at Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery at Medical City, or TIRS, are pioneers in performing minimally invasive surgery using the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System Si. In the expert hands of our surgeons, this groundbreaking technology offers an advanced alternative to open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, with benefits such as:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • In many cases, better clinical outcomes

About the da Vinci® Surgical System Si

At a Glance

Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery was created with a singular vision—to provide a better surgical experience for patients. As a member of the statewide Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery, we are leading the way in best practices, research, training and clinical expertise for all of North Texas.

In addition to providing a minimally invasive robotic surgery option in the areas of gynecology, oncology and urology, Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery at Medical City is the FIRST hospital in North Texas to perform cholecystectomies (or gall bladder removal surgery) using robotic single incision technology via the state-of-the art da Vinci® Si Surgical System. By overcoming the limits of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, we are changing the experience of surgery for people throughout North Texas.
