Obstetrics/Gynecology (OB/Gyn) physicians at ARC now offer Central Texas women gynecological surgical care using one of the most advanced and sophisticated tools, the da Vinci® Surgery System.

da Vinci® combines the benefits of open abdominal surgery and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. With the da Vinci System, surgeons operate through one small incision in the belly button or through a few small incisions instead of a large open incision (similar to traditional laparoscopy), leaving you with virtually scarless results and the opportunity to get back to your life quicker. The robotic tool allows surgeons and gynecologists to perform highly complex surgical manipulations even in difficult cases through tiny incisions the size of a dime. The results for patients is less pain, minimal blood loss, shorter hospital stays and faster return to daily activities.
