Advanced technology meets compassionate, five-star care at Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano. Providing innovative, minimally invasive treatment methods to our guests is an important part of Baylor Scott & White Heart – Plano patient experience. The surgeons on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White Heart – Plano are performing delicate heart and thoracic (chest) surgeries using robotic technology.​


Through tiny incisions, robotic technology allows surgeons to see inside the body in minute detail. The robotic arms allow the surgeons to perform procedures with enhanced precision. A camera affixed to one of the robotic arms allows the surgeon to view the procedure in 3D from a console at a magnification ten times greater than the human eye. From the console, the surgeon also deploys and maneuvers other robotic arms that feature laser tools and miniature scalpels. Surgery with the robot typically offers several advantages over traditional surgery such as shorter hospital stays, smaller incisions, and quicker recovery time.
