Robotic Surgery: Urology

 
Robotic Surgery: Urology

Since the early 1990s, laparoscopic and, more recently, robotic surgery have become mainstream as minimally-invasive surgical alternatives for many urologic conditions including both benign and cancerous conditions.

In most cases, laparoscopic and robotic surgery have resulted in:
  • Less pain and scarring
  • Less blood loss
  • Increased accuracy and precision
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities
Robotic surgery assists urologists at Saint Francis Hospital in a number of important procedures including:
  • Transurethral resection of the prostate
  • Percutaneous renal access
  • Pyeloplasty (uretero-pelvic junction repair)
  • Robotically-assisted cancer treatment surgeries including prostatectomy (prostate), nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy (kidneys), and cystectomy (bladder)
