A New Day. A New Way.

The physicians and staff at Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery (TIRS) at Medical City Dallas are pioneers in performing minimally invasive surgery using the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Surgical System Si and Xi. 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.

Single Site Surgeries with da Vinci® Xi Surgical System

Medical City Dallas Hospital is proud to offer our patients minimally-invasive, robotically-assisted single site surgeries on the state-of-the-art da Vinci® Xi Surgical System. Single site surgery is safer than traditional surgery and allows patients to have only a single incision, which is hidden in the umbilicus (belly button) and essentially provides a scarless procedure. In 2015, more than 1,300 patients underwent robotic surgeries at Medical City, which were performed by 40 different surgeons.

Medical City Dallas offers minimally-invasive, robotically-assisted surgeries in the following areas:

The da Vinci® Xi robot offers greater range of motion and better visualization for surgeons, allowing them to more accurately access parts of the human anatomy not possible with other robots. This technology allows surgeons to perform complex procedures in which a minimally invasive option may not have previously been possible or that would have required a larger incision.

Medical City Dallas Hospital surgeons performed the first two single site robotic surgeries on a da Vinci® Xi robot in North Texas. See our short video about Medical City’s first two single site surgeries in North Texas on the da Vinci® Xi robot.

If your doctor recommends hysterectomy, you may be a candidate for da Vinci® hysterectomy, one of the most effective, least invasive treatment options for a range of uterine conditions.

Learn About Robotic Gynecologic Surgery

Gynecologic Oncology

In the case of a radical hysterectomy for gynecologic cancer, robot-assisted surgery enables surgeons to perform with unmatched precision and control, using only a few small incisions.
