Robotic surgery

HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake offers robotic surgery as a minimally-invasive alternative to many invasive surgeries. Robotic surgery allows for surgeons to operate with more precision and unequaled control. This innovative surgery has changed the way patients recover, with faster healing, less scarring, a shorter hospital stay and reduced recovery time.

How it works

Robotic surgery is able to turn a procedure that typically requires a six to 12 inch incision into a procedure that requires a dime-sized incision. It has also evolved and now offers single-site technology, allowing for certain surgeries to be performed through one incision.
