Robotic & Minimally Invasive Surgery Center Utilizes Innovative Technology
University Hospitals Urology Institute’s Robotic & Minimally Invasive Surgery Center is at the forefront of the most state-of-the-art surgical techniques in urology today.
We offer one of the most comprehensive, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery programs in the treatment of urology conditions. Our physicians are also highly skilled in performing a broad spectrum of traditional laparoscopic (keyhole) procedures.
Advancing Surgical Treatment Options for Patients
Throughout our operating rooms, tiny incisions, fiber optic scopes and robotic instruments are allowing our physicians to perform urology procedures using minimally invasive surgery. These advances are giving patients access to less invasive procedures, which can enable more targeted surgical treatment and minimize the potential for complications. This allows patients to experience less pain and a quicker recovery without compromising the surgical or cancer outcomes.
We offer the most leading-edge surgical treatments, continuously advancing the range of procedures that can be done through a series of small, dime-sized holes, rather than incisions ranging from 6 to 10 inches. Advances in robotics are fueling greater surgical precision and improved outcomes.
Experienced Surgeons, Excellent Results
Our physicians are among the most experienced and innovative in this burgeoning field, consistently achieving excellent clinical results. One of our surgeons became the first in the nation to perform a double robotic surgery, removing a cancerous kidney and prostate through one small incision using the daVinci® Surgical System. As a multidisciplinary team, we collaborate daily to consistently deliver superior, patient-centered care. Our goal is to offer minimally invasive, robotic options while still giving the same excellent results as traditional approaches, but with enhanced recovery and better cosmetic results.
Patients can also benefit from the entire care team's familiarity with the recovery process after minimally invasive/robotics surgery, and team members are involved in each patient's post-surgery care. This team-based approach helps ensure better communication and can further shorten hospitalization and recovery time.
