Robotic Urology Surgery
Undergoing any kind of surgery on the urinary tract or male reproductive organs can cause significant anxiety for most patients. The most frequently asked questions is: “Will my body function normally following surgery?”
The post-surgical pain and drawbacks of traditional open urologic surgery—lengthy recovery, unpredictable, potentially long-term impact on continence and sexual function—can understandably cause this anxiety.
Thanks to continuous advances in robotic surgery and the state-of-the-art technology of the da Vinci Surgical System®, robotic-assisted surgery continues to broaden the scope and enhance the benefits of minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgery, making it one of the most effective treatments for a variety of urologic conditions.
- Prostate cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction
- Vesicoureteral reflux
- Robotic cystectomy (removal of all or part of the bladder)
- Robotic partial nephrectomy (removal of a portion of the kidney)
- Robotic (radical) prostatectomy (removal of the prostate)
Our team is committed to providing you with superior care and will work with you and your primary care physician to determine whether robotic surgery is a viable option for treating your condition.
