Our Approach

CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana brought the first surgical robot to Southwest Louisiana with the goal of offering cutting-edge technology here at home.

In the 15 years and more than 3000 robotic surgeries since, we’ve seen better outcomes that include:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Greater precision
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer Complications
  • Smaller incisions
  • Faster recovery time
