Procedure Done Robotically Through Four Small Holes Between Ribs Patient Released From Hospital After 1 ½ Days

62-year-old Canton resident Luther Roden, a patient at Mother Frances Hospital, is the first in east Texas to benefit from a heart bypass procedure done totally endoscopically using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. Mr. Roden was released from the hospital just 1½ days after the procedure.

Heart surgeons at Mother Frances have used the system since February 2004, but this is the first bypass procedure done without any extensive incisions. Officials with the Trinity Mother Frances Heart Institute say the new approach can reduce a patient's hospital stay to as few as two days and pain is minimal compared to traditional bypass procedures, which include opening the chest cavity.
