Dr. Renata Ford Brings Robotic Cardiac Surgery to San Antonio

Using the most advanced technology available, da Vinci Surgery provides Dr. Renata Ford with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. Because your doctor performs da Vinci Surgery through a few tiny incisions between the ribs, splitting your breastbone and ribcage is avoided. The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons and their patients with a minimally invasive treatment option – often even for complex cases.

Compared to traditional open surgery,minimally invasive da Vinci Surgery provides the following potential benefits to cardiac patients:

Lower risk of major cardiac event during first year after surgery
Less blood loss and need for blood transfusions
Shorter hospital stay
Faster recovery and return to normal daily activities
