The latest surgical technology paired with highly experienced surgeons.
At HCA Midwest Health, we strive to deliver innovative, evidence-based care with the best possible results. One of the ways we do this is by recruiting surgeons that practice the latest techniques and investing in leading-edge technology.
Surgical robots are another tool for your surgeon. Robotic surgery technology can help a surgeon with the positing and control of surgical instruments, and can lead increased accuracy and improved outcomes.
Six of our Kansas City hospitals offer robotic surgery for a variety of service lines and conditions. HCA Midwest Health hospitals have:
- Performed over 1/3 of all robotic surgeries in KC over the last five years
- Helped over 2,000 people using robotic technology in 2017
- 18 robotic surgical systems
- Over 95 robotically trained physicians
Robotic-assisted laparoscopy is offered at six HCA Midwest Health Kansas City hospitals. The da Vinci Surgical® System allows surgeons to perform extremely complex operations through just a few small incisions. It provides surgeons with greater precision, control, visibility and access to hard-to-reach areas.
Da Vinci robotic surgery offers all of the same benefits as traditional laparoscopy when compared to open surgery. Benefits can include:
- A shorter hospital stay
- Less pain
- Smaller, more cosmetically pleasing incisions
- Shorter recovery time
- Less blood loss
- Reduced risk of infection
Single Incision Robotic Laparoscopy
HCA Midwest Health is the first and only health system in the Kansas City metro area to offer single incision robotic-assisted surgery. Using the latest da Vinci technology, the da Vinci SP, a surgeon is able to perform complex surgery even more minimally invasively than ever before.
The single port da Vinci SP is currently FDA approved for ear, nose and throat (ENT), and urologic surgery. This state-of-the-art surgical technology is available at Menorah Medical Center.
Robotics in Orthopedics
HCA Midwest Health offers three leading-edge robotic options for orthopedic surgery:
NAVIO Surgical System – This revolutionary system uses a hand-held robotic surgical instrument that can help to increase accuracy of an implants positioning during a knee replacement. This increased accuracy can lead to improved function, feel and longevity of the knee implant.
This technology is available at Belton Regional Medical Center and Centerpoint Medical Center.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System – This state-of-the-art robotic technology allows the surgeon to personalize a hip or knee replacement surgical plan based on a person’s unique anatomy. The orthopedic surgeon guides the robotic arm within the predefined surgical area. The technology does not allow the arm to outside the defined surgical space which reduces the potential for error. The robotic technology also allows the surgeon to place and align the implant with increased accuracy.
This technology is available at Overland Park Regional Medical Center.
ROSA Knee System – This leading-edge robotic system allows surgeons to personalize the surgical plan based on a person’s unique anatomy. It combines data with images that can predict outcomes before performing any incisions.
This technology is available at Menorah Medical Center.
