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.
