We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis is the first hospital in the region to be able to offer minimally invasive surgery with the Mazor Robotics Renaissance™ guidance system for spine procedures and the Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery for hip, total and partial knee replacements. Our robotic surgery center is located at the Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis campus.
da Vinci® Robotic Assisted Surgery
Surgery can be intimidating, but the good news is that you have more options today than ever before, and one of those is da Vinci® robotic assisted surgery. This type of minimally invasive surgery helps your surgeon perform the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with incredible precision.
We use da Vinci® because it works. With da Vinci®, surgeons use a control panel to perform the procedure with robotic arms, so da Vinci® is entirely human directed—it cannot be programmed or make decisions on its own. But we can use technology to its fullest advantage, providing patients with the most precise care possible.
Benefits of da Vinci® include:
A faster return to normal daily activities
Better clinical outcomes
Shorter recovery time
Reduced risk of infection
Significantly less pain
Less blood loss
