Urology

When medication and other non-surgical treatments are unavailable or cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the recommended treatment for many conditions that affect the male reproductive organs and urinary tract organs. These conditions include, among other things, prostate cancer, ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, bladder and kidney cancer and vesicoureteral reflux.

Fortunately, less invasive surgical options are available to many people facing urologic surgery. The most common is laparoscopy, which uses small incisions. Laparoscopy can be very effective for many routine procedures, but due to the surgical instruments involved, it is typically not used for more complex urologic surgeries.

When medication and other non-surgical treatments are either unavailable or cannot relieve symptoms, surgery is the accepted treatment for a broad range of conditions that affect the male reproductive organs and the organs of the unrinary tract. These conditions include, but are not limited to, prostate cancer, ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, bladder and kidney cancer and vesicoureteral reflux. Most of the recent reports pertaining to robotic surgery have been in the domain of localized cancer of the prostate (radical prostatectomy), bladder cancer (radical cystectomy and urinary diversion for muscle invasive bladder cancer), kidney surgery (nephrectomy, donor nephrectomy and pyeloplasty), and adrenal surgery.

Robotic Surgery is being used by many surgeons worldwide for prostatectomy and other urologic procedures. It is a minimally invasive approach, using the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is ideal for both complex and delicate urologic surgeries. This includes prostatectomy, where the target site is not only tightly confined but also surrounded by nerves affecting urinary control and sexual function.

Robotic Surgery offers patients facing urologic surgery many potential benefits over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal daily activities


Robotic urologic surgery, an exciting and new emerging frontier in the field of urology, has tremendous benefits to the patient Through a robotic urologic procedure there is less pain, less blood loss, less trauma, quicker recovery period and a host of other reasons which suggest that the robotically assisted approach is the way of the future. It is important, therefore, that urologists keep up with new technologies, and persist with incorporating them in everyday surgery. There are a substantial number of reports on performing complex urological procedures with robotic assistance that document their safety, efficacy and feasibility. These approaches provide the most beneficial surgical outcomes for the patient.
