Surgeons at Houston Methodist have special expertise in robotic surgery — using a robotic interface to control tools more precisely during surgical procedures.
The benefits of robotic surgery include:
- Smaller incisions
- Better visualization of surgical field
- Improved surgical outcomes
- Shorter hospital stays
- Less postoperative pain
- Improved recovery times
Our state-of-the-art facilities across the Greater Houston area are equipped with advanced robotic platforms, making Houston Methodist operating rooms some of the most advanced in the country.
Leaders in Robotic Surgery
Our surgeons perform hundreds of robotic procedures each year. But they’re not just utilizing the technique, they’re expanding the use of it, too.
Houston Methodist is home to one of the largest and most comprehensive surgical education and research facilities in the world, Houston Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation & Education (MITIE). This revolutionary platform allows our surgeons to continually refine and acquire new skills through hands-on training — enabling them to perform at the highest levels throughout their careers.
Using MITIE and simulation surgery, we are also training our residents and fellows on advanced robotic techniques, ensuring the continued use of these techniques in the new generation of surgeons.
