The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is the first cardiovascular specialty hospital in North Texas to specialize in robotic-assisted cardiovascular and thoracic procedures

It's Here...the only Cardiothoracic robotic-assisted procedures available in North Texas The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano has once again improved its patient experience with the introduction of the first da Vinci® Surgical System designated solely for cardiovascular and thoracic robotic-assisted procedures in North Texas. Now, patients can undergo major cardiovascular and thoracic procedures with just a few incisions and will likely experience a much shorter recovery time. Less discomfort and shorter down-time can allow patients a faster recovery and return to normal activities.

The robotic-assisted surgery system integrates 3-D, hi-definition (10X magnification) endoscopy and four robotic arms to direct cameras and complex surgical equipment into the surgical field. A qualified surgeon controls the system from a nearby console, orchestrating precise surgical maneuvers. Trained surgeons on the medical staff at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano are able to perform even the most complex cardiac and thoracic surgeries with just a few small incisions placed between the ribs.

Procedures performed with robotic assistance allow the surgeon to be more accurate and less invasive. Other benefits often include decreased blood loss during surgery, shorter hospital stay, reduced risk of infection, and less pain and scarring.

Cardiovascular and thoracic procedures that can be performed with the robotic surgical system at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano include coronary artery bypass grafting, heart valve repair and all thoracic surgical procedures.
