Da Vinci Robotic Surgery for Urologic Conditions

Today, complex conditions can be treated with minimally invasive surgery using  a da Vinci robotic surgical system.

This system provides your surgeon with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. It requires only a few small incisions so you can get back to life faster without the usual recovery time needed following traditional open surgery.

Benefits to having surgery with a da Vinci system include:

  • faster recovery and shorter hospital stays
  • less blood loss
  • minimal pain and complications
  • lower risk of infection
  • smaller incisions and less scarring

A few of the conditions treated by our urologists using the Da Vinci Robot include:

  • Prostatectomy
  • Pyeloplasty
  • Cystectomy
  • Nephrectomy
