Robotic-assisted surgery often means smaller incisions, less pain and faster recovery for patients. Yet many patients are unaware that it is offered right here in Waco. Committed to providing personalized, compassionate care to the community, Ascension Providence was the first in Waco to offer robotic surgery in 2013. Since then, it has increased surgical capabilities and patient access to robotic surgery resulting in nearly 4,000 surgeries. Multiple procedures are offered including gynecology, urology, thoracic including lung biopsy, reflux, hernia, colon and rectal surgery. The specially trained surgeons at Ascension Providence start by listening to each patient, creating a personalized care plan and then delivering the surgical option that is best for each patient, using state-of-the-art technology.
