With the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing, people are understandably cautious and especially selective about where to receive healthcare. At a time when quality care, outcomes and patient experience are particularly important, Medical City Lewisville’s extensive network of health experts stand ready to deliver safe, compassionate and world-class care.
Serving the Southern Denton County communities for more than 40 years, Medical City Lewisville first offered robotic surgeries in 2014. Since then the hospital’s robotics program has grown to include two state-of-the-art da Vinci systems, the leading edge of robotic surgical technology for minimally invasive surgeries. Leading the hospital’s program is Bryan Borgfeld, MD, who serves as the Robotic Surgery Medical Director. A board certified surgeon with 27 years of experience and nearly 500 robotic surgeries completed, Dr. Borgfeld is also a longtime resident of Denton County and has likely been the surgeon for someone you know – and the procedure was likely robotic. “I’m from DFW and have worked here my entire career, because I believe it’s essential for patients to have access to a higher level of comprehensive care within their own communities and close to home,” Dr. Borgfeld said.
Dr. Borgfeld explains that the benefits of robotic surgery can result in a better experience for patients, because this technology exponentially expands the surgeon’s precision and provides enhanced, 3D visual capabilities. Ultimately for the patient, this can result in significantly less pain, reduced need for narcotic pain relievers, shorter hospital stays, and faster recoveries. Robotic surgery was first conducted more than 20 years ago, and today it is used for a vast range of surgical treatments including hernia repairs, gallbladder removals, hysterectomies, weight loss surgery and more.
In addition to the extensive experience of its surgical experts and multidisciplinary care teams, Medical City Lewisville boasts top-in-class results for quality and patient outcomes. Recent recognitions include the Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award the last two years; and straight A honors since 2016 in the Leapfrog Group’s Hospital Safety rankings. Additionally, patients consistently rank the hospital’s surgical department with top scores for excellent patient experience outcomes. Coupled with extensive screening protocols and stringent sanitation standards, patients can take comfort in trusting Medical City Lewisville experts for their surgery needs.
