Robotic Surgery in Kansas City
Minimally invasive surgery with smaller incisions and a shorter hospital stay
Until recently, surgery patients had to choose between traditional "open" surgery with a large incision, or laparoscopy, which uses small incisions but cannot be used for all procedures. HCA Midwest Health offers robotic-assisted surgery as an innovative option for patients. Robot-assisted surgery provides surgeons with greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions.
There's no such thing as "routine" surgery. We work closely with patients, families and doctors to be sure that every question is answered and every concern addressed - including advice on how to prepare for your surgery, what to expect during your treatment and the best ways to make a fast, full recovery.
