Progressive Surgery on the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Memorial’s surgical department has advanced equipment and a team that will provide you with high-quality care such as traditional or open surgery, minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and surgery assisted by robotics.
Our skilled, experienced, and compassionate surgical team is here for you. State-of-the-art equipment and strict safety protocols mean the highest quality care leads to the best possible outcomes. We perform:
- Bariatric (Weight Loss)
- DIEP “Tummy Tuck” Flap
- Cardiac (Heart)
- Ear, Nose and Throat
- Lungs and Chest
- and more!
We rely on technology to make many aspects of our life easier. The medical field is not different in this way. Technology enhances the talents and experience of our robotic-assisted, trained surgeons to allow them to deliver precise and consistent results. Our goal is to restore our patients, helping them heal safely and efficiently so they may return to doing the things they love – faster.
Robotics can be applied to a variety of surgical procedures. Many patients experience less scarring and faster recovery with robotic-assisted surgeries. Here is a glimpse of our technology:
da Vinci® X and Di HD Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Memorial’s da Vinci Si HD® Robotic Surgical System allows surgeons to remotely control tiny instruments to perform intricate operations through very small incisions. Benefits experienced by patients may include a shorter hospital stay, less pain, less risk of infection, less blood loss, fewer transfusions, less scarring, faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities. None of these benefits can be guaranteed, as surgery is necessarily both patient- and procedure-specific. Normal surgical complications may occur with surgery.
Mazor X Robotic Spine Surgery
Memorial is the first on the Gulf Coast to offer the Mazor X Guidance Platform for Robotic Spine Surgery. Mazor X is the world’s most advanced robotic navigation system for the correction of severe spinal deformities, spinal stenosis, and other spine conditions.
Stryker Mako® Robotic-Assisted Joint Surgery
This surgery provides the most precise partial knee, total knee, and total hip replacements using the Stryker Mako® Robotic Arm. Our skilled surgeons can plan, personalize and perform these operations with incredible accuracy.
Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA® Knee System™
This robot-assisted surgery is designed to improve the outcomes of knee replacement. Unlike traditional knee replacement methods, with ROSA Knee, x-rays are used to create a 3d model of your knee’s anatomy. This model enables our surgeons to plan personalize the specifics of your knee replacement prior to your surgery.a precise point and destroy cancer cells.
The Monarch™ Robotic-Assisted Bronchoscopy
The goal of Auris Health’s Monarch™ Platform is to enable earlier and more-accurate diagnosis of small and hard-to-reach nodules in the periphery of the lung. The technology integrates the latest advancements in robotics, software, data science, and endoscopy (the use of small cameras and tools to enter the body through its natural openings). Memorial is among the first hospitals in the United States to utilize the platform.
Why robotic-assisted surgery?
Robotics may be used for a variety of reasons, primarily a tool for a surgeon to reach areas that were once unreachable and manipulate tissues once captured during elaborate surgeries. Procedures include:
- Cutting away cancer tissue from sensitive parts of the body such as blood vessels, nerves or important body organs
- Gallbladder removal
- Kidney removal
- Pyeloplasty (surgery to correct ureteropelvic junction obstruction)
- Radical prostatectomy
- Tubal ligation
- Hernias – hiatal, abdominal, umbilical and inguinal
