Improving the transplant experience with advanced robotic technology
As a leader in transplant care, we’re constantly striving to create an even better experience for you. Combined with skilled surgeons, years of experience and numerous support services, our robotic technology is one more way we offer you innovative options for transplant care.
We’re the only transplant center in the world using minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical techniques for four different types of transplant surgery:
In North Texas, Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, in Dallas has one of the busiest multi-specialty organ transplant systems in the world—the Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute.
Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center – Fort Worth is an internationally renowned destination for transplant care and one of the largest in the nation.
Expanded options for kidney transplant recipients
If you need a kidney transplant but have a high BMI, a robotic-assisted kidney transplant may increase your options for care.
People with a high BMI are often unable to have open kidney transplant surgery. They have an increased risk of wound healing problems, longer recovery and repeat hernia repairs. Robotic transplant surgery solves these issues. It gives living donor kidney recipients who exceed traditional transplant weight limits new hope for transplant care.
Living donor transplant options
A transplant from a living donor offers many advantages over deceased donor transplants, such as shorter wait times and better long-term outcomes. Learn more about the living donor procedures that have an option for robotic surgery at our center.
