da Vinci® surgery offers several benefits including:

  • smaller incisions and less scarring
  • less blood loss and pain
  • a quicker recovery

Changing the surgery experience through robotic advancements

Baptist was the first health system in San Antonio and South Texas to offer our patients minimally invasive surgery using the robotic da Vinci® Surgical System.

This innovative technology allows our most experienced and trusted surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions, with unmatched precision.

In San Antonio, da Vinci® Surgery is available at Baptist Medical Center, North Central Baptist Hospital, Northeast Baptist Hospital, and St. Luke's Baptist Hospital.

Treating a variety of conditions

Our expert physicians use da Vinci® surgery to treat a variety of conditions with precision and to lessen your recovery time—allowing you to get back to your normal life quickly.

We provide da Vinci® assisted surgery of the heart, lungs and esophagus as an alternative to the large zipper-like incision and lengthy recovery time which results from traditional open surgery. The da Vinci® robotic heart surgery, involves only four small incisions.

Robotic surgery is quickly becoming the standard of care across the country for procedures involving gynecological and urological conditions as well. da Vinci® Prostatectomy even removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures. Recovery is shortened to days as opposed to weeks. That's Baptist Care.
