There’s a place in Arlington that believes you deserve Better. That’s why the only specialty hospital of its kind in the DFW Metroplex – Baylor Scott & White Orthopedic and Spine Hospital – continually invests in the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies.
Step 1: Defining the Source of Your Pain, Once and for All
The hospital has made one of North Texas’ most profound commitments to properly diagnosing pain with a major investment: adding a second MRI to its radiology department.
Patients get faster, more comfortable exams from the hospital’s Philips Ingenia Ambition 1.5T MRI magnets. These scans can be fully customized for your individual need; the crystal-clear images give you and your care team complete confidence in your diagnosis. To serve any moment of need, these MRI machines are available 24/7 through the hospital’s emergency room, or you can schedule an appointment with a physician’s order.
In addition to MRI, there are a wide array of other diagnostic technologies available at Baylor Scott & White – Arlington, such as advanced CT, ultrasound, and X-ray. In the emergency room, GE fully digital mobile x-ray allows for immediate visualization of your injury or condition. It is also used for post-operative imaging to confirm the results of surgeries. This technology’s portability makes it easy for hospital staff to bring this sophisticated imaging system directly to you.
MRI and CT appointments are available Monday-Friday from 7am to 7pm, and Saturdays from 8am to noon. For sudden injuries or pain, the 24/7 emergency room is consistently staffed to keep wait times short.
You won’t wait long for your imaging results either, because Baylor Scott & White – Arlington prioritizes fast turnaround. Our team of on-site orthopedic and spine radiologists in Arlington plus other connected specialists will assess your scans and X-rays to ensure speed and accuracy for your diagnostic results, and direct communications with your care team.
Robot-Assisted Surgery is Minimally Invasive, Easing Recovery for Better Outcomes
Robot-assisted surgery offers you a true breakthrough in minimally invasive surgery. In this proven technique your surgeon performs operations using a computer console to control micro-instruments and a high-resolution camera attached to robotic arms.
The robotics investments at Baylor Scott & White – Arlington include the Mako Robotic Arm-Assisted Surgery, Zimmer Biomet Rosa Robotic Surgical Assistant, and the ExcelsiusGPS Robotic Navigation System. They give your surgeon far greater precision and control over the surgical instruments than is possible with human movement alone. The benefits for patients are many, including:
- Reduced pain, discomfort, and blood loss
- Smaller incisions, resulting in less risk of infection
- Minimal scarring
- Shorter recovery times and hospital stays
- Faster return to normal activities
