Northwest surgical services

At HCA Houston Northwest, our surgeons are experts in their specialty and use the latest technology for minimally invasive surgeries, which includes robotic-assisted options. Rather than operating on patients through large incisions, this advanced capability allows our surgeons to use tiny surgical instruments that fit through a series of small incisions to reduce chances of scarring and recovery time. Robotic-assisted surgery is used in a wide range of specialties, including abdominal, gynecologic, orthopedic and urologic procedures.

We offer access to surgeons in a variety of medical specialties.
