Reconstructive urology

MedStar Health is the first in Washington, D.C., to perform urethral reconstruction procedures, and with the most experience restoring function to the urinary tract. Our surgeons have fellowship training from centers of excellence around the world, with the unique advantage of being the most experienced in complex urologic reconstruction in this region. We work hard to restore function to the genitourinary system, personalizing the plan depending on each person’s circumstance and goals.

Urologic robotic surgery

When medication and other non-surgical treatments are unavailable or cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the recommended treatment for many urologic conditions. Our surgeons have the training and expertise to perform the most complex urologic conditions. Minimally invasive robotic surgery for urology allows for smaller incisions, less postoperative pain and quicker recovery times. At the cornerstone of robotic surgery is the da Vinci ® Surgical System–a sophisticated platform designed to expand the surgeon's capabilities. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including one of the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments, robotic surgery.

Dr Robert Gutman and Dr James Robinson are two of the renowned urology surgeons at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
