At UTMB Health, we are aware that a high level of surgical skill alone is not enough to take care of a whole person; we realize great technical and clinical expertise must be balanced with the ability to connect with people. We are here to listen, to hear, to explain and understand. We're not just about taking care of a problem; we understand we're here to help improve your quality of life.
Dr. Ana M. Rodriguez of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently took top honors for a research presentation [get details].
Members of the clinical care team at Texas Robotic Gynecology make up the Minimally Invasive Gynecology and Research Program at the University of Texas Medical Branch. It's a group that works hard to stay up to date with the latest technology, best practices and most effective treatments for many women's health issues. We work together, and focus entirely on what is best for you, the patient. We perform a wide array of gynecological procedures using minimally invasive and robotic-assisted techniques, including more than 400 hysterectomies each year.
Minimally invasive surgery offers patients a host of advantages over open surgery, including quicker recovery time, less blood loss, less pain and a shorter hospital stay. For many women, it's worth investigating.
As director of Texas Robotic Gynecology at UTMB, if you are considering an open hysterectomy, I invite you to please visit us for a consult or second opinion. One of our expert gynecologists may be able to offer you a hysterectomy performed laparoscopically or with robotic assistance. As a team affiliated with a major university medical center, we routinely resolve high risk or complicated cases referred to us from as far away as Beaumont and Corpus Christi. Take advantage of our experience and our whole-woman approach to get great care and a speedy return to a happy, healthy and productive life.
