BROWNSVILLE, Texas – In honor of the first robotic surgery at new DHR Health hospital in Brownsville former State Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr. presented Dr. Rene Luna with a Texas state flag that was flown over the capitol. Dr. Luna, a distinguished specialist in Robotic Surgical Gynecology, ranks among the state’s foremost robotic surgeons. His first robotic surgery at DHR Health Brownsville aimed at correcting and preserving a woman’s ability to start a family in the future, followed by another case addressing the urgent need for a life-saving hysterectomy in a woman beyond her reproductive years. While minimally invasive surgeries have been available in Brownsville, the introduction of the DHR Health Brownsville signifies the establishment of a modern, state-of-the-art surgical hub in the area. This expertise is set to flourish, benefitting the community and fostering continued growth in the Rio Grande Valley.
