Advance Urological Procedures

areas4Technology has finally arrived in the operating room with the advent of the daVinci surgical robot. This robotic provides greater visibility, precision and accuracy. daVinci robotic surgeries have the advantage of less tissue trauma, less pain and quicker recovery. Urology has taken the lead in implementing robotic surgery in treatment of urologic disorders such as robotic prostatectomy, nephrectomy and cystectomy. Within trained hands, the daVinci robot is powerful tool for the urologic surgeon to treat and cure many urological disorders. Furthermore, surgeries are safer with shorter hospitalization.

Robotic surgeries have traditionally been procedures reserved for inpatient hospitals. However, after more than 3000 robotic surgeries at Tower Urology, our patients typically only stay 1 night in the hospital. Because the surgical complications are so low and also with the low postoperative pain, same day discharge home may be possible. In fact, our surgeons at Tower Urology are the first in the country to perform an outpatient robotic radical nephrectomy and robotic pyeloplasty in a surgery center with patients able to go home the same day. Other specialities are also following in this trend with outpatient robotic gynecological and bariatric surgeries going home within hours after completing their surgery.
