What Surgeries are Available Robotically?

Many urologic surgeries are available using robotic surgery today and robotic technology is constantly being applied to new surgeries. Below is a list of some of the surgeries The Urology Group currently offers:

Adrenalectomy – removal of the gland above the kidney

Bladder diverticulectomy > surgical correction of a diverticula—abnormal sacs or pouches in the urinary bladder that form when the bladder lining protrudes through the bladder wall.

Cystectomy – removal of the bladder

  • Anterior pelvic exenteration – removal of the bladder, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and anterior wall of the vagina (women with bladder cancer)
  • Cystoprostatectomy – removal of the bladder and prostate (men with bladder cancer)

Nephrectomy – removal of the kidney

Nephroureterectomy - removal of the kidney, renal pelvis, ureter and bladder cuff.  It is performed primarily to treat transitional cell carcinoma.  Partial nephrectomy – removal of part of the kidney

Prostatectomy – removal of the prostate

  • Radical – removal for prostate cancer
  • Simple – removal for difficulty passing the urine

Pyeloplasty – surgical correction of a blockage that has occurred between the kidney and the ureter - the tube that drains the kidney into the bladder. Removing the blockage allows urine to drain freely from the kidney to the bladder.

Sacroculpopexy – vaginal suspension for prolapse

Ureteral reimplant – reconstruction of where the kidney tube (ureter) meets the Bladder
