Robotic Surgery

Surgery is often a last option after other treatments have been explored. But when an operation is necessary, Valley Baptist knows you want it over with as quickly, and as painlessly, as possible.

That’s why we offer minimally invasive robotic surgery using the da Vinci™ Surgical System. Using high-tech instrumentation, our surgeons are able to make minute incisions and perform surgery with pinpoint accuracy.

We even offer "single site" surgery for gallbladder disease.  For this procedure, the physician operates through one small incision in the "belly button," resulting in minimal scarring,  

What does this mean for you?

  • Less bleeding
  • Smaller scars
  • Less pain
  • Faster healing
The team of surgeons at Valley Baptist in Harlingen and Brownsville offer gynecological, urologic, and general surgery procedures using the robot, including:

Gynecological Procedures for:
  • Hysterectomy
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Vaginal prolapse
  • Gynecological cancers

  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney disorders
General Surgery for:
  • Gall bladder removal, including "Single Site Surgery" for gallbladder disease.  
  • Colorectal Cancer

Strong Team, Solid Results

Valley Baptist has the most comprehensive robotic surgery program in the Rio Grande Valley. We have an outstanding robotics team in place, people who are well trained and care deeply about their patients. We have the most physicians, too — in fact, some doctors who do their residency work here have remained to become a part of our robotics team. We are a part of the community.

The whole point of having surgery is to fix what’s wrong and get you back into your everyday activities. At Valley Baptist, we have a dedicated robotics team with more experience than any other hospital or surgery center in the Rio Grande Valley. That’s Valley Baptist Care.
