On Friday march 26th we celebrated the 500th surgery by ATX Robotic Surgery. The ATX RS came together in The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. to celebrate ATX Robotic surgery completing 500 surgeries. The ATX RS team includes our medical staff, office staff, business operations and the technology team. Most importantly, former patients joined our celebration to commemorate this milestone.
The ATX team enjoyed reflecting on memorable cases from the past year and all the amazing people we were able to help. Among the more interesting cases remembered, were: the emergent ruptured appendix in a young mother who was 31 weeks pregnant, and a very complex hernia surgery that typically would have required a large open incision and a one week hospital stay for the patient. This particular hernia patient went home the same day after Dr. Burman performed his robotic magic.
This is what ATX Robotic Surgery is all about!
