- Advanced Surgical Procedures Done at AdventHealth Shawnee Mission
It’s normal to feel anxious about surgery, but it's our goal to ease your mind and help you feel empowered. And you have every reason to be relaxed. With AdventHealth Shawnee Mission, formerly Shawnee Mission Medical Center, you have a vast team of experts that provides excellent care and compassionate support. Your care may also involve minimally invasive surgeries, including the Kansas City area’s first surgical robotics system. Our in-patient and outpatient facilities offer some of the most-advanced surgical options available, including:
- Endoscopic Procedures – Requiring no incisions
- Laparoscopic Procedures – Relying only on small incisions
- Robot-Assisted Surgeries – Utilizing the da Vinci Surgical System for maximum precision
We’re honored to stand by your side. Our highly skilled Surgical Care team will work hard to find the treatment that’s right for you and deliver it with the utmost attention to both your comfort and its success.
- Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics
Almost two decades ago, we were the first hospital in a five-state area to use the da Vinci surgical robot, allowing Kansas City residents to benefit from minimally invasive techniques and shorter recovery times. The Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics continues to offer robotic procedures that help you get back to life sooner. We take a team approach, our surgeons and staff alike, to improve your experience and surgical outcomes.
The da Vinci is used for a variety of procedures at AdventHealth Shawnee Mission including urology, gynecology, pelvic floor reconstructions oftentimes to treat issues such as incontinence or prolapse, as well as benign and cancerous surgeries, including gynecologic, colorectal and general surgeries. Surgeons are able to operate the da Vinci from a computer that controls a surgical arm unit. The magnification of the camera is 10 times higher than what can be seen by the human eye.
Our number one goal is to ensure you stay healthy. Whether your passion is cycling, walking the dog or hanging out with family, we will help you to meet your wellness goals so that you can return to a normal routine as quickly as possible following robotic surgery.
