Aurora BayCare Urological Surgeons offers precise robotic-assisted surgery to treat a wide variety of urinary system issues. Those conditions include:
- Kidney cancer (partial and radical nephrectomy, or partial or complete removal of the kidney)
- Prostate cancer (prostatectomy, or removal of the prostate gland)
- Bladder cancer
- Urinary reconstruction
- Prostate, bladder, kidney and erectile dysfunction
When non-invasive treatments are not an option, robotic-assisted surgery may offer an innovative, high-quality alternative. Robotic-assisted surgery maximizes the potential to restore urinary control and erectile function. It also offers equal or improved cancer cure rates.
Our urological surgeons use the da Vinci robotic surgical system, a proven and industry-leading technology. That system, combined with our urological surgeons’ expertise, provides the best possible outcomes for patients’ comfort and care. Our urological surgeons have performed hundreds of robotic-assisted surgeries over the last decade.
Robotic-assisted surgery is often preferred when surgery is intricate or complex. It allows surgeons to make smaller incisions and be more precise. Magnified, high-resolution 3D images help surgeons better visualize the treatment area and give them more control over procedures.
Studies show robotic-assisted surgery provides patient outcomes that are equal to or better than open surgery. The benefits include:
- Shorter recovery time
- Shorter hospital stays
- Significantly less pain
- Less bleeding and scarring
- Reduced risk of infection or other complications
