Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery

Reduced hospital stays and recovery times

When medication and noninvasive procedures are not effective, surgery is the preferred treatment for male urological conditions. These include prostate cancer, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, bladder and kidney cancer, and vesicoureteral reflux. For complex urological surgeries, the da Vinci® Surgical System may offer the most effective, least invasive treatment option. Our surgeons use the da Vinci system to perform the following urologic procedures:

  • Prostatectomy
  • Lymph node dissection
  • Nephrectomy
  • Partial nephrectomy
  • Cystectomy
  • Pyeloplasty
