Surgical Services

A full array of surgical services are available at John Peter Smith Hospital. Women can expect a superior level of care in an environment of personal attention, compassion and respect. A comprehensive program of inpatient and outpatient services is available, with surgery scheduled on both an inpatient and same day basis.

Surgeons at John Peter Smith Hospital and the JPS Health Center for Women in Arlington are the first in the area to use robotic technology to assist in the operating room, offering patients the next generation in robotic-assisted surgery. Our surgeons, Dr. Salvatore Lococo, Dr. Kip Hinkle and Dr. Peter Elliott, are using the da Vinci S Surgical System to perform minimally invasive procedures such as hysterectomies. Through tiny, 1-2 cm incisions, our surgeons can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
