Urologic Robotic Surgery

Surgery has evolved dramatically in recent years, with an increasing number of procedures routinely performed minimally invasively, through laparoscopy. Now, thanks to robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures with greater precision than ever before. Working from real-time imaging, the surgeon operates virtually from behind a console.

The system translates the surgeon's movements into the precise manipulation of tiny surgical instruments that have been introduced into the surgical site through a very small incision. This robust and versatile technology helps us achieve our goal of always operating as minimally invasively as possible, with exceptional control.

Advantages of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

  • Significantly less pain
  • Reduced blood loss and less blood transfusions
  • Fewer complications
  • Smaller scars
  • A faster recovery and return to normal daily activities

About Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive robotic surgery is ideal for treating complex and delicate urological conditions and cancers affecting the kidney, adrenal gland, bladder, prostate, and surrounding lymph nodes.

Our urologic surgeons have been specially trained on the da Vinci® SI for the following complex urologic operations:

  • Radical and Simple Prostatectomy
  • Radical Cystectomy
  • Partial (kidney-sparing) and Radical Nephrectomy
  • Pyeloplasty (to fix kidney blockages)
  • Adrenalectomy
  • Ureteral Re-implant
