The Division of Urologic Surgery sets new standards for surgical treatments that are less invasive and more beneficial to patients. Powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology, surgeons use the da Vinci robotic surgical system to translate their hand motions into precise movements of microinstruments inserted within the abdomen. The newly renovated cystoscopy suite offers the most advanced urodynamic and endoscopic equipment available, and sophisticated technology allows for enhanced fluoroscopic imaging.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How is robotic prostate surgery different from traditional methods?
Robotic surgery uses the da Vinci® Surgical System, an innovative piece of robotic assisted technology. This system allows for the performance of minimally invasive prostatectomies with smaller incisions and enhanced visualization. All this allows for less blood loss and scarring, which speeds up recovery time.

How long is the hospital stay?
Most patients are discharged within 24 hours of surgery.

Will I be able to resume my normal activities?
Patients are often able to resume normal activities over time. Most activities can be resumed within 4-6 weeks or as recommended by the physician.
